The minor in Environmental Studies consists of a minimum of 18 hours. Four courses (12-13 hours) make up the required core. The remaining hours (six) must come from the approved course list. Students wishing to enter the Environmental Studies minor must first complete ENVR 101 and ENVR 101L as a prerequisite. A course in Statistics (STAT 110 or equivalent) is strongly recommended. All prerequisite courses may be used to meet general education requirements, if applicable. Students enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences and College of Engineering and Computing must choose their remaining hours from the courses listed below specifically for them. Students enrolled in other colleges should choose their remaining hours from the courses listed specifically for them. No courses will be allowed to count for both the minor in Environmental Studies and the student’s major. South Carolina Honors College students are encouraged to pursue this course of study, but Honors Pro-seminars in environmentally related subjects used for credit toward the major must be approved by the Environment and Sustainability Undergraduate Committee.
A student may pursue a minor in Environmental Studies with the academic advisor’s approval. The student must declare the selection of the minor in the office of the student’s major academic dean.
