Food Systems and Nutrition
The Food Systems and Nutrition minor encompasses a wide array of topics
addressing sustainable food production, policy, access and nutrition. This minor
requires taking a total of six courses consisting of an
interdisciplinary gateway course (ENV 009), an introductory
course and three electives drawn from thematic
areas of the student's choice. The minor ends with a required
capstone course (ENV 190) or experience.
Environmental Science and Policy Minor (for Engineering Students)
The Environmental Science and Policy minor is designed to give engineering
majors greater exposure to natural and social sciences, and thereby deepening
student's understanding of the causes and solutions to problems related to
environmental sustainability. The minor requires taking a total of
six courses consisting of 3 core classes and
3 elective classes.
The Environmental Studies major requires the completion of five core courses, plus five courses in any one track, and an internship. The core curriculum requires students to master basic scientific principles of environmental processes, to examine interactions between technology and the environment, and to explore the societal context for implementing environmental policy. We recommend that students begin the major by taking Environmental Biology (Bio7/Env7) early on, to get to know the program.
In addition to the core course, students are required to take five courses in their program track.
The revised tracks include:
The track courses must include one introduction to the track course; three additional courses, one of which must be a seminar; and a methods or research course. Student may double count courses, but no more than three courses can count for both their first and second majors.
Attention students: Once you declare Environmental Studies as a major, please send an email to environmentalstudies (@tufts.edu)so we can promptly add you to our email list.
