Incorporating the Sustainability Minor into the EENR Major

For Ecology, Evolution & Natural Resource students who are interested in completing the Minor in Sustainability, we have compiled a list of courses (see below) that will NOT only fulfill some categories in the EENR Major but ALSO fulfill the Sustainability Minor. You are not compelled to only take these courses listed below, this is meant as a suggestion. Information in this document should be verified as changes to course designations happen all the time.

Note: To get a minor in sustainability only two additional courses would need to be taken that do not also satisfy either the EENR requirements/electives or core credit in SEBS or both.
