Environmental Writing Minor
Students minoring in Environmental Writing take at least two courses outside the English Department that deepen their understanding of the natural environment or of environmental issues. One course must come from the Environmental Science Department, and we strongly recommend ENVSC 110 - Introduction to Environmental Science.
