Minor in Earth, Environment, and Global Sustainability

The minor in Earth, Environment, and Global Sustainability (EEGS) comprises four courses beyond the NASC four-credit course. Our earth’s environmental issues and the sustainability of its resources will provide humanity with one of its biggest challenges for the foreseeable future.
