Mansfield University... Developing Tomorrow's Leaders History - What Can I Study?



Minors


Environmental Studies

The environmental studies minor allows students of all majors to engage in a fully interdisciplinary course of study focused on the relationship between people and the natural world. This enterprise is designed to deepen understanding of the humanities and the sciences and to suggest ways those disciplines can be integrated. This minor will also help students to be more effective citizens in a world where the earth’s population of 6 billion is projected to double during their lifetimes and the demand for resources will increase.
