Coastal Environmental Science Minor

The Environmental Science minor is designed to familiarize students with the natural world by providing a sound foundation of knowledge concerning our planet, diverse Floridian and global ecosystems, natural processes, and ecological sustainability. This program provides a science based route for civic engagement, problem solving, group cooperation, and personal growth. The addition of this minor to any major course of study will provide a unique opportunity for Flagler College students to engage with their community and their peers in undergraduate research. Students who pursue a minor in Environmental Science must take a minimum of 16 NAS credits.
