Minor in Environmental Studies (for non-scientists)Natural Resources Home | History & Overview | Policies/Procedures | Degree Requirements | Programs | Organizations
The minor in environmental studies (for non-scientists) is distinct from the minor in environmental science (for science-oriented students). It provides course work with high environmental relevance but only an introductory scientific foundation for students in fields such as architecture, humanities or fine arts who want to gain useful knowledge of the environment without having access blocked by course prerequisites in the biophysical sciences. The minor requires exposure to a combination of basic environmental science, issues, applications and policy. It requires five courses (15-17 hours), selected as follows:
Principles of Ecology (take one course):
Environmental Issues and Application (take two or three courses):
Take one course each from one or two
of these categories:
Students must earn 45 credits before they can apply for the minor in environmental science. The application is available in 103 Black Hall. Students must first obtain the signature of the dean or authorized representative of their major college before submitting the completed form to 103 Black Hall for processing.
Transfer work will be accepted only for PCB 3034C, PCB 4044C and an earth systems course. To be considered for admission to the minor, students must have a minimum 2.00 overall GPA on all UF course work attempted.
The minor will be listed on the transcript at graduation.
