Notes


Graduate programs may require additional coursework. All students wishing to attend graduate school in any field should discuss necessary supplementary coursework with their advisor as early as possible. 

A minimum of 120 hours of course work is required for graduation, including twelve hours of advanced (400 level or approved 300 level) courses that must be taken on this campus.

All foreign language requirements must be satisfied.

There is no ESES minor option, but there is the Environmental Fellows Program minor.

A Major Plan of Study form must be completed and submitted to the LAS Student Affairs Office before the end of the fifth semester (60-75 hours).  Study abroad courses may be substituted for major and minor requirements with approval of advisor.

Double majoring is generally allowed, as per the College of Liberal Arts and Science’s guidelines, with the following exception: undergraduate students may not major in both ESES and in a major directed by one of the three departments (Geology, Geography, and Atmospheric Science) that make up the School.



Departmental Distinction: Students who maintain grade point averages of at least 3.3 in all courses within the major and who fulfill the Capstone requirement with a faculty-guided individual research project are recommended for graduation with distinction.
