Science - Environmental Studies

Home > Science > Environmental Studies

The Environmental Studies Minor has been designed as a program for non-Science students to develop scientific literacy skills in order to engage critically with environmental issues. Care for the environment already impacts our social, political and ethical decisions, and students with a minor in Environmental Studies these decisions can be informed by a deeper understanding of the complexity of our relationship with the environment.

A unique feature of the Crandall campus is that it is part of a 200-acre property that includes stream, bog and Acadian forest habitats. Students in the Environmental Studies minor will be part of the ongoing study of these natural environments in addition to off campus study of the diverse maritime ecosystems locally accessible to Crandall University. This firsthand access, alongside close interaction with a faculty of gifted scientists who model the integration of faith and science, will provide students with the tools to become critical-thinking stewards of creation.
