Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our world today; it is the crisis of our time. With a minor in climate studies, you look at the global crisis of climate change through a diverse range of courses.

Why Climate Studies at CSB+SJU?

The climate studies minor invites students to focus specifically on the topic of climate change through a diverse range of disciplinary lenses. Climate studies and seeking to understand and craft solutions to the global climate crisis, is a quintessentially interdisciplinary field that complements any existing major of study or future career.
