The Minor in Environmental Sciences is an interdisciplinary program in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences that is designed for students pursuing any UNC Charlotte degree who are interested in careers related to studying or managing the environment.

Minor Requirements

To obtain a Minor in Environmental Sciences, students must complete 18 credit hours offered from the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences  and the Department of Biological Sciences . Participating students have some flexibility in choosing elective courses that reflect their specific area of interest within the environmental field. If students are Geography and Earth Sciences or Biological Science majors, they must take at least 9 of the 15 elective credits outside of their major. Prerequisites are required for most of the elective classes (notably GEOL 1200  and lab, ESCI 1101  and lab, BIOL 2120 , and BIOL 2130  and lab). Courses that are required for a student’s major cannot be counted toward the minor as well, but electives taken for a major can also be counted for the minor.
