We offer further opportunities through our GIS (Geographic Information Systems) certificate, aimed at bringing modern GPS and GIS technologies to students of all majors and to local communities. A two-semester GIS sequence is offered, ENV308-Introduction to GIS (GIS I) in the spring, and ENV408-GIS Applications and Advanced Spatial Analyses (GIS II) in the fall. What is GIS?


Our Environmental Studies Minor is designed specifically for students from a diversity of majors with a strong interest in environmental issues, but not strictly environmental science, to gain a basic interdisciplinary perspective on these issues and challenges, including environmental policy and law, philosophy and literature, and sustainable development.


Our Chemistry Minor provides students with a grounding in basic chemistry principles and a study of chemistry sub-disciplines, including organic chemistry, biochemistry and environmental chemistry.


Our Geology Minor is designed for students seeking a fundamental understanding of Earth materials and geological processes. This minor should especially be considered by students who may be interested in pursuing careers in the fields of chemistry, engineering and earth sciences.


Our Physical Science Minor gives students a foundation in the science of non-living systems, and encompasses principles of physics and chemistry.
