Environmental Resource Management Minor

University Park, College of Agricultural Sciences (E R M)

The Environmental Resource Management (E R M) minor is designed to provide science-based non-majors with a cohesive selection of courses related to the sustainable management of environmental resources.

The minor was developed to permit students from other majors to have their environmental interests and training formally documented on their academic records. Because so many of society's activities have an impact on environmental quality, the minor should appeal to students with majors from a wide variety of science-based disciplines.

The E R M minor includes an introduction to calculations and problem-solving skills common to managing environmental resources, and allows students to select a wide variety of other E R M courses that cater to their strengths and interests. Students may also elect to take courses in environmental law, resource allocation and economics, and soil sustainability and management. Individual programs are determined jointly by the student and the E R M Program Coordinator.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
