Minor in Sustainability

Curriculum & Requirements

Sustainability Minor

The Sustainability Minor provides an interdisciplinary prospective on finding sustainable solutions to social and environmental problems. Sustainability is a discipline that combines leadership, environmental and social sciences, economics, social justice, and ethics to promote global well-being, meeting the needs of today without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

This minor is recommended for students who are developing expertise in other areas who would like to apply those skills in a “green” career, and students with a strong personal interest in sustainability.

Many courses in the minor are also BACRs, and electives that are compatible with a wide variety of majors. SUST 371 serves as a culminating experience providing practice in developing unique sustainability solutions.
