Current Courses

Minor in Environmental and Sustainability Studies

Some courses can count for the minor but are not listed in the catalog.  Hess will issue variances for those courses so that they count toward the minor.

This is a list of courses that can receive credit for the Minor in Environmental and Sustainability Studies. If you identify a course that is not on the list, please contact Prof. Hess to see if it can qualify for the minor. Usually he will need to see the syllabus before granting a variance. Note: in some cases it is possible to count a B list course for the C list and vice-versa, so please contact Prof. Hess if you want to be considered for a variance.  Some courses listed below may not appear in your degree audit for the ESS minor. If that happens, contact Prof. Hess.
