Environmental Conservation and Sustainability Minor
The minor in Environmental Conservation and Sustainability allows students from diverse majors across all UNH colleges to incorporate the theory and practice of sustainable resource use into their 4-year baccalaureate studies. Students take required introductory courses in both conservation and sustainability and then can fill out their minor with choices from ecology, social science and management, and a range of advanced topics. As well, students who participate in the EcoQuest Study Abroad Program can apply their courses to the minor.
