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 nonmajors with an overview of the principles and practices of managing resources prudently and economically.

The minor was developed to permit students of 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 disciplines, including journalism and education majors who want to write and teach in the environmental field.

The E R M minor includes an introduction to modern resource systems analysis and environmental impact assessment. Students may also elect to take courses in environmental law and resource allocation and economics. 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.
