Academic Programs

As a university, GW is committed to enhancing and promoting our sustainability research, academics and programs. GW is home to over 460 courses on topics related to sustainability that students take across multiple academic programs at the undergraduate and graduate level.  These courses serve as the foundation for many of sustainability-related academic programs offered at the university.  GW offers many undergraduategraduate and post-graduate programs in sustainability-related fields across the ten different schools. The most recent among these is GW’s unique undergraduate minor in sustainability. Launched in Fall 2012, this 18-credit program is pan-university and serves as a model for inter-disciplinary teaching.

Research also plays an important role in the academic experience, and GW is home to eleven world-renowned institutes and programs that conduct research across the spectrum of sustainability-related topics – from renewable energy to poverty reduction.  GW is also home to over 300 sustainability-minded faculty who conduct cutting edge research and bring leading expertise in areas such science, health, policy, business, education, communications and development.
