Environmental Studies - Sample Schedule

Environmental Studies Sample Schedule

Please bear in mind that the following is merely a sample schedule. Many students have AP credits, foreign language credits, or transfer credits that would alter the sample schedule. Other contingencies that would likely alter the sample schedule include: enrollment in a study abroad program, winter session course(s), summer session course(s), and additional directed research credits. Thus, it is key that you meet with your academic advisor prior to selecting courses each semester to ensure that you are progressing through the program satisfactorily.

Please note that the sample schedule represents one of many paths through the program. The total number of credits may not be exact as the number of credits for concentration courses and directed research courses are variable.
