NOTE: The EVHM degree program will be phased out beginning in Fall 2013. As of February 19, 2013 the major will no longer be accepting new students. Prospective majors should contact Thomas Reynolds about similar major options or about the EVHM minor, which will continue to be available.Can I minor in EVHM?
Yes, it is possible to minor in Environment and the Humanities by taking 18 hours of EVHM coursework. A minor degree plan is available online or from the EVHM advisor.Do I have to be in the Honors College to be an EVHM Major or Minor?
No, though the EVHM degree program is housed in the Honors College, it is not a requirement that the EVHM major or minor be a member of that program. Students interested in EVHM may want to check out the Honors College, however, since many of the EVHM courses count toward Honors credit.What can I do with an EVHM degree?
EVHM is primarily designed to prepare students for careers in environmental and nature writing, natural history interpretation, and environmental law. However, the EVHM curriculum is flexible and now includes specific tracks for students intenting to pursue law school or medical school. Though it is still a young program, our alumni already have gone on to study law, pursue higher degrees in literature, landscape architecture, and creative writing, serve in the Peace Corps and the military, teach English in Japan, and work in museums, nature centers, and parks. Former students have also attended medical school.I'm transferring in to EVHM. Will I lose my credits?
If the office of the registrar approves the transfer of credits from your school, then the chances are good that we can apply some or all of them to the EVHM degree. The only way to know for certain, however, is to make an appointment with the EVHM advisor to evaluate the applicability of the coursework.
