Environmental Studies Now a Minor

Posted June 14th, 2011 at 3:10 pm.

The Bryn Mawr Environmental Studies program has grown from a concentration into a minor!

From the Environmental Studies program website:

The Bryn Mawr College Environmental Studies Concentration is now a MINOR! Whatever you are majoring in, at Bryn Mawr or at Haverford, you may also complete a six course minor in Environmental Studies. The structure of the minor allows for more flexibility, more opportunities to do advanced Environmental Studies work, and also allows for more cooperation and collaboration between the Bryn Mawr, Haverford and Swarthmore campuses!

The minor consists of six courses: an interdisciplinary foundational course (ENVS 101), an interdisciplinary capstone course (ENVS 397), two courses from approved lists in the natural sciences, and two courses form approved lists in the humanities and social sciences.

You should plan your minor carefully with the Director of Environmental Studies and in consultation with your major advisor. In choosing your electives, remember that you should be reaching beyond your major, that at least one of your natural science courses should have a lab, and that the majority of your electives should be intermediate or advanced courses.
