Students admitted to the University of Cincinnati can declare Environmental Studies as their minor. There are two separate options for minoring in the EVST program. The environmental studies minor (EVST) is similar to the major, while the environmental policy and planning minor (EVAP) has a more select set of requirements.
In the first year, all minors need to take EVST 1011 [Fall] and EVST 1012 [Spring]. Completion of this introductory sequence is a prerequisite for other required and elective courses. EVST minors are then required to take EVST 2084C and one of the Advanced Topic Courses, EVST 4011, 4012, 4013, or 4014. EVAP minors, instead, take EVST 6001. Both minors then go on to take five EVST elective courses.
