Choosing A Minor-Environmental Studies, Geography and Geography and Earth Sciences
Hey guys
I got accepted into the Society option in Engineering and my letter to the director outlining my plans for the next few years is due in about two weeks.

With that in mind, I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me decide my minor by shedding some light on these programs.

I am very interested in the following minors: Environmental Studies, Geography and Geography and Earth Sciences.

I would appreciate it if anyone could share their experiences with these programs and their respective courses.

Thanks a lot!

I havent taken any geography classes, but after taking all the environmental classes in first year i enjoyed the classes. The first year ones are easy so it doesnt make your other course load harder and they are pretty interesting.

Obviously biased but .... You can do a lot of different streams and specilizations in geography and earth science. I don`t take many geography classes but if you like meterology, hydrogeology, biology, chemistry, or even just rocks, there are several courses pertaining to each interest. I say you take a first year class, see where your interests lie and then take some upper year classes.
If you asking about the easiness of the classes well, it widely varies. Some are rather difficult and challenging while other require almost no work. The program is very choice oriented.
