Environmental Safety Management

The minor in environmental safety management is open to all majors. It is recommended for science majors and business administration majors. The objective of the minor is to provide the student with a basic background in business administration, environmental science and occupational safety. Thiel College graduates with the ESM minor seeking employment in manufacturing, construction, healthcare and energy industries (oil and gas) will have an advantage over candidates without the minor. The student must complete at least 19 credit hours (7 courses) to fulfill the requirements. Students must pass all courses with a minimum grade of “C-.”
