Requirements for Minors in Integrated Environmental Science and Environmental Justice
IES offers minors in Integrated Environmental Science (minimum 19 credit hours) and Environmental Justice (minimum 18 credit hours). The minor in Integrated Environmental Science is a field science- and policy-focused minor designed for students who want to obtain some background and training in environmental science to help address environmental aspects of advanced study or careers arising from other majors at Bethune-Cookman University. This minor will appeal to those who have a primary interest in another discipline but who are nonetheless interested in environmental issues. The minor in Environmental Justice is an interdisciplinary minor intended to prepare transformative leaders to meet the social needs of those impacted by environmental injustice. The minor contains coursework and practical experience in three related avenues of inquiry: ethics/environmental ethics, environmental science and policy, and either regulation or history. This course of study will appeal to those interested in social or environmental policy, sustainability issues, public service, public advocacy, or similar forms of civic engagement. It will also appeal to those working toward a major in Integrated Environmental Science (IES), particularly if the student plans to work with environmental policy initiatives. Both minors are open to majors in all disciplines. For course requirements, see the Department Chair.
