Pursuing a minor in Earth Systems can help you build a better understanding of the global extent and impact of environmental problems. This minor focuses on a large-scale and interdisciplinary approach to questions of global change and the interactions of the physical and human environments. It provides a wider interdisciplinary perspective for majors in the traditional Earth science disciplines (geography, geoscience, and meteorology), and provides an introduction to Earth sciences and a broad exposure to Earth systems/environmental studies for other science and engineering majors.
