(School of Arts & Sciences)
The School of Arts & Sciences offers two minors (22.5 credits) that enhance and strengthen the qualifications of graduates moving into business: Environmental Sustainability and Technical Communications.* These are intended to give students opportunities to develop expertise in an area that complements their major. Real-world applications are embedded in both minors.
This minor prepares students to understand the scientific, public policy and economic challenges of current environmental problems such as global climate change and renewable energy. Faced with balancing social, economic and environmental concerns, industry and community leaders are exploring sustainable business practices. Through course work and field research, students develop the knowledge and skills needed to address sustainability issues and to navigate the emerging green economy.
The only minors offered are those listed in the catalog. Students cannot elect to create their own minors.
