Environmental Education Minor

Environmental Studies


The Environmental Studies program offers two minors to undergraduate students. Each requires 15 credits. Though the minors are open to all students, they are of particular benefits to students in the English, Education, Business Administration, Psychology, Theology, Philosophy, Biology, Chemistry, and Government and Politics majors.

Please note that all courses taken for the Environmental Studies minors must be taken outside of your major. No overlap between major and minor courses is permitted.


The minor in Environmental Education requires the completion of 15 credits, including ESP 1010 Introduction to Ecological Principles, GEO 2001 Natural Resources and World Development, ESP 2150 Concepts and Practices of Environmental Education, and two additional courses from among the program electives, chosen in consultation with an advisor.

Only academic programs approved by NYSED are eligible for federal and state aid: NYS Inventory of Registered Programs  Minors are not recognized by NYSED therefore associated courses are only eligible for federal or state aid consideration when required by a major or when also used to satisfy a core or general elective requirement.
