The undergraduate Minor in Sustainability allows students to explore the challenges of sustainability and to think about how to develop solutions to pressing issues at the local, regional, and global scale. It introduces students to the concepts, principles, and issues that inform the sustainability paradigm and also integrates classroom and community-based learning and research in a program that prepares students to apply the sustainability perspective to their future endeavors.
This pan-university Sustainability Minor includes several innovative features such as team-taught courses including SUST 1001: Introduction to Sustainability and SUST 3003: The Sustainable Plate. These interdisciplinary courses are taught by faculty and experts from several schools and disciplines. Additionally, all sustainability minors complete a Culminating Experience in their junior or senior year in the form of service, internship, research, or study abroad.
