Green Minor Options

No matter what you choose to major in, there are a variety of environmentally focused minors to complement your primary area of study.

A minor in Appropriate Technology (pdf) allows students to familiarize themselves with promising technologies, while also developing an understanding of how choices about technologies might be made.
