Environmental Studies Minor

Connect to Greater with a minor in environmental studies

At Trinity, we’ll help you make a difference with a minor in environmental studies.

Since Trinity is just 25 miles from downtown Chicago, you’ll have world-class institutions like the Shedd Aquarium and Morton Arboretum in your backyard. You will also have the opportunity to work closely with professors on projects even closer to home, since research is often done on the Navajo Creek that flows through campus.
