Minor Program in Environmental Studies

Students who are not Environmental and Urban Studies majors may complete a minor in Environmental and Urban Studies. Such a minor requires that six courses be taken according to the following guidelines:

ENST 21201 Human Impact on the Environment 100
ENST 21301 Making the Natural World: Foundations of Human Ecology 100
Four courses in one of the three thematic tracks * 400
Total Units 600
*

Must be chosen in consultation with the program director.

Students who elect the minor program in Environmental and Urban Studies should meet with the program director before the end of Spring Quarter of their third year to declare their intention to complete the minor and select appropriate courses. The approval of the program director for the minor program should be submitted to a student's College adviser by the deadline above on a form obtained from the adviser.

Courses in the minor (1) may not be double counted with the student's major(s) or with other minors and (2) may not be counted toward general education requirements. Courses in the minor must be taken for quality grades, and at least half of the requirements for the minor must be met by registering for courses bearing University of Chicago course numbers.
