Additional information:

  1. EVS 301 (offered fall even years)
  2. CMS 210 and ENG 101 are strongly recommended
  3. Students interested in air quality should take MTH 235

Early in their course of study, students should work with their advisor and appropriate faculty to ensure prerequisites are met.
