Fact sheet for students getting a Fisheries Minor who also want to get a Minor in Sustainability

For students getting a Minor in Fisheries who are interested in completing the Minor in Sustainability, we have compiled a list of courses (see below) that will NOT only fulfill some categories in the Fisheries Minor but ALSO fulfill the Sustainability Minor and some SEBS core requirements. You are not compelled to only take these courses listed below, this is meant as a suggestion. Information in this document should be verified as changes to course designations happen all the time.

Note: To get a minor in sustainability only three additional courses and a practicum would need to be taken that do not also satisfy either the fisheries minor requirements/electives or core credit in SEBS or both.
