Earth Systems Minor (EASYS) - (ARCHIVE)

The recognition that environmental problems are global in extent, and impact on many different components of the Earth System simultaneously, requires that we adopt a large-scale and interdisciplinary approach to questions of global change and the interactions of the physical and human environments. The Earth Systems minor follows such an approach and offers undergraduates the opportunity to study the Earth as an integrated system. The Earth Systems minor is a science minor offered through the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences. It provides a wider interdisciplinary perspective for majors in the traditional Earth Science disciplines (geography, geoscience, and meteorology), and provides an introduction to Earth Sciences and a broad exposure to Earth Systems/Environmental Studies for other science and engineering majors.
