Environmental Studies, B.A. Curriculum Guide


This curriculum guide is an unofficial tool for planning. Matriculated students and advisors should consult the Academic Requirements Report in GullNet before and after registering for classes each semester to track academic progress.

Please Note:

  • ENVR Elective Course 1, 2 or 3 fills the Gen. Ed. IIIC requirement.
  • Most students fulfill ENGL XXX and HIST XXX with courses that double count for the ENVR major.
  • Students are required to complete a minor. They are encouraged, but not required, to get a double major. Thus, Elective slots are indicated as optional “Elective/double major” slots; and minor slots are double major slots as well, if students choose to complete a double major, rather than a minor.
  • Most students chooses a minor that does include courses that double-count for General Education and/or the major; most students will have an additional Elective.
  • This curriculum guide does not include study abroad, though students are encouraged to do so.
