environment_minorInterdisciplinary Minor in Environmental Science:  The Wake Forest Environmental program offers both an Environmental Science minor and an Environmental Studies minor.  The Environmental program provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of human-environmental interaction.  The Environmental Science or the Environmental Studies minor, coupled with a liberal arts major, is designed to prepare students for careers in the environmental sciences, law, public health, public policy, and public administration, and to develop attitudes and values consistent with a sustainable environmental future.

Please consult a current copy (or online version) of the Wake Forest bulletin for course requirements.  The requirements of a Biology major and Environmental Sciences minor overlap somewhat. For more information contact Dr. Abdessadek Lachgar, Environmental Program Director (lachgar@wfu.edu).
