General Science courses provide an introduction to many scientific fields and may be taken in fulfillment of the core curriculum science requirements or as electives in science.

Environmental Science Minor

The minor in Environmental Sciences is an interdisciplinary degree program open to students in any major. The curriculum was designed with enough flexibility to allow students of all majors to enroll in the minor with ease. The elective courses are also designed to satisfy individual field of interests. Students will participate in interdepartmental seminars and become involved in the study of environmentally related problems at both the national, regional and international levels. The minor will also enhance the students' career marketability.
