Additional information

No biology course in the Environmental Science Minor may also be counted toward any biology major. Therefore, biology majors who select this minor must replace all biology courses in the minor with an equal number of hours in advisor-approved electives. At least eight of these replacement hours must be in geology, geography, chemistry and/or agriculture courses.

If combined with the B.A. in Geology, the student must add an additional 4-hour course to achieve the 56-hour combined a minimum number of hours required for the major plus the minor.

No systematic electives may count for both a major in geology or geography and this minor.
