Environmental Science, Minor
This is an archived copy of the 2018-2019 catalog. To access the most recent version of the catalog, please visit http://catalog.slu.edu.
Environmental science encompasses the study of Earth’s environment, which is comprised of the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere, with emphasis on human interactions with these spheres.
Students will learn how these spheres interact with each other in the natural world, how human activities influence the environment and how people are affected by the ever-changing environment. The environmental science program is designed so students first gain a thorough foundation of knowledge in all spheres and then focus more on one or more sub-disciplines, for example: soil, water, energy or climate change.
