Winter 2022 Environmental Science Tip Sheet

  • Bracketed codes refer to University Requirements: Arts and Letters = [>1]; Social Science = [>2]; Science = [>3];
  • Multicultural Codes for students enrolled prior to Fall 2019 = [IC], [IP], [AC]
  • Cultural Literacy Codes starting Fall 2019: Global Perspectives = {GP} ; US = Difference, Inequality, Agency {US}

Unless otherwise noted, classes are held in person on the Eugene Main Campus.


*GEOG 141 only counts if Earth and Physical Science is the non-focal area and CHEM 111 and ANTH 270 only count if life science is non-focal area

**Only one ERTH 30X class may count towards ENVS/ESCI major requirements

  • The tip sheet is to be used as a guide only. Changes may be made to the class schedule after the tip sheets have been published.
  • Any class on the tip sheet or requirement sheet is guaranteed to count toward the major in the Area under which it is listed for that particular term.
  • Up to three ENVS courses may count towards different general education group requirements if ENVS is your primary major
  • Some courses may be restricted to certain majors for the first few days of registration. You can look up individual CRN information in the class schedule to learn about pre-requisites, fees, field trips, registration restrictions and other important information.
