Earn a minor in environmental sciences online through Ecampus
The OSU Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences and Ecampus invite you to discover the flexibility and value of completing an environmental sciences minor online as part of your undergraduate degree program.
Caring for the planet
OSU's environmental sciences minor course work offers an interdisciplinary approach to environmental problem solving and helps students obtain excellent training for a variety of career choices. Industries are becoming aware of their role in protecting our environment so adding a minor in environmental sciences opens up career opportunities in a variety of fields, such as:
- Natural resources: Apply your problem solving skills to the management of resources and policies affecting our scarce natural resources.
- Anthropology: What is the relationship between people and their physical environment? A minor in environmental sciences will provide you the skills to analyze the affects of societies actions on the environment and investigate sustainable solutions.
- Fisheries & Wildlife: Contribute to the research and development of programs that will allow our fish and wildlife to thrive in their delicate environment.
The 27 credits required for the minor are in addition to the credits required for the student's major. Adequate preparation in science is assumed as a prerequisite, therefore students completing this minor should have a year of general biology (for science majors with lab), and physical science (chemistry or physics with lab). Visit the environmental sciences minor curriculum page for requirements and course details or view all of Oregon State's online courses in environmental sciences.
Students can also earn a B.S. in Environmental Sciences degree online through Ecampus, giving you more choices in this subject area.
