Minor in Earth and Atmospheric Science

The science of the Earth as a system has implications for many fields of study. Students interested in understanding how the Earth’s systems work can earn a bachelor’s degree, while completing the requirements for a minor in Earth and Atmospheric Science.  The program is primarily designed for students in the natural sciences and engineering who wish to explore interdisciplinary problems and broaden their studies to include the application of their fields to understanding the Earth system.

Note: This minor is not available to students in the (B.S.) Bachelor of Science in Earth System Science or (B.A.) Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Science programs.

Requirements for the Minor

Earth System Science 51, 53, 55, or Earth System Science 60A, 60B, 60C, plus four electives chosen from the approved elective list for the B.S. in Earth System Science major, at least two of which must be Earth System Science courses.
