Any Indiana University student enrolled in a baccalaureate program may pursue one or more of the minors offered by the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Individuals interested in one or more of these minors should inquire in the SPEA undergraduate advising office for additional details. Students who successfully complete the requirements will have the minor conferred with their degree. SPEA's multidisciplinary faculty and curricula address environmental, public policy, and management issues from a variety of perspectives. A minor in SPEA can enhance career opportunities for liberal arts and other majors.
