Graduate Minor in Environment and Natural Resources (ENR)

The minor in ENR is designed for PhD students, although it is also available to master's students (most master's students can complete the double major in the same amount of time).

There is not an additional thesis required for the concurrent graduate major or minor in ENR, though ENR academic advisors are happy to suggest committee members from relevant fields.

With planning and support, most graduate students who add an ENR minor are able to complete their degree requirements in the same amount of time it would have taken without the minor.
