MINOR POLICY IN ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

 

The minor in Environmental Management and Sustainable Development (EM&SD) is specifically designed for AUCA students that are not majoring in EM&SD and who are willing to gain more knowledge about this relatively new field of specialty. Students will be able to take various courses within the ambits of an innovative four year degree program that introduces students to the increasingly important and fascinating field of EM&SD by employing a multi-disciplinary approach. Students shall complete a total of 42 credits for the minor in EM&SD, which includes five core courses and four elective courses.

 

It should be noted that students are eligible to apply/proceed with a Minor in EM&SD only if they receive “B-” or higher grade for a core course (Intro to Environmental Management and Sustainable Development).

 

To receive a minor in EM&SD students must have permission of their department chair and the coordinator of the EM&SD Program Concentration. Students must have a GPA of 2.70 or higher and a “B-” grade or above in all courses that will count towards the minor. Only successful candidates, whose transcripts will meet all the requirements of the program, will be granted a minor in EM&SD.

 

To obtain a permission of the Coordinator of EM&SD Program Concentration for the minor in EM&SD, students shall submit the following documents:

  • Application letter requesting consideration for a minor;
  • Copy of current transcript (GPA shall be of 2.7 or higher).
