E&S Minor

Students seeking a minor in Environment & Sustainability (E&S) will develop a basic knowledge of biological, physical and social scientific perspectives on environment. The minor is designed to allow students to gain confidence in their understanding of sustainability and the complex interactions and interdependence that characterize ecosystems and relationships between society and environment.


  • Students choose a minimum of 13 credits from a breadth of subjects.
  • A minimum of two courses must be at the 3000-level or higher.
  • The 1 credit colloquium (ENVS 2000 or BEE 2000) is required.
  • All courses, except ENVS 2000 or BEE 2000, must be taken for a letter grade, and a grade of “C” or better must be recorded.
  • Any undergraduate student at Cornell may enroll in the minor (except E&S majors)
