Online and Continuing Education Environmental Studies Minor

Environmental Studies Minor

“My pursuit of the Environmental Studies minor in conjunction with the Management major was a personal choice for multiple reasons: to increase my environmental consciousness and strive to minimize my own negative impact on our planet; it’s important to my employer and helps me to stay aligned in working to achieve our business objectives; and it’s important to other employers as well which makes me more marketable in the labor market.”

Chris Hukill, Supply Chain Development Manager, BS, Linfield College

Overview

Accredited Online Colleges, Environmental Studies Photo - Linfield College Adult Degree Program

Students may elect this minor as a means of adding an environmental perspective to their major field of study. Because our whole being and our very survival as a species are so intimately connected with a healthy biosphere, Environmental Studies is highly interdisciplinary with almost every field in the liberal arts curriculum involved. While the field traditionally draws most heavily from the natural and social sciences, studies in the humanities are also important for developing skills in communication and interpretation.

What is a Minor?

In addition to any online degree program, Linfield students may elect to complete the requirements for a minor. A minor program consists of 20-30 credits, including prerequisites and support courses. At least 10 of the creidts included in a minor must be taken at or through Linfield.
