The minor provides you with an understanding of the concepts and principles of applying scientific inquiry to questions about earth's systems. You will be exposed to a wide range of scientific disciplines with a specific focus on the laboratory techniques and instrumentation used most commonly in studying these systems. The minor is especially valuable for students interested in environmental careers. The minor is not solely, or even primarily, for Natural Sciences & Mathematics majors. Students from many allied programs, including Kinesiology, pre-Nursing and Education, often pursue minors within the division.
