The Special Concentration in Environmental Science for Environmental Biology majors requires the completion of 31.5 credits distributed among three categories of requirements presented in sections I-III below. See the Columbia College Bulletin for course descriptions.
I. Introductory Environmental Science (ALL of the following):
- UN2100 Earth's Environmental Systems: Climate (4.5 credits)
- UN2200 Earth's Environmental Systems: Solid Earth (4.5 credits)
- UN2300 Earth's Environmental Systems: Life (4.5 credits)
II. Supporting Math and Science Courses:
One year of chemistry, physics, mathematics and/or biology chosen from the Supporting Math and Science course list for the environmental science major.
III. Advanced Courses: *
Four additional courses from those recommended for the environmental science major (3000 level and above).
*Advanced courses that fulfill the major in environmental biology cannot also count toward fulfillment of the special concentration in environmental science.
