Sustainability Major

The sustainability major and minor engage students in a systems approach to understanding the connections between society, economics, and the environmental.

Experiential learning is a core goal of the sustainability program. Students take service-learning and field methods courses as part of the curriculum and are encouraged to engage in sustainability initiatives on campus and in the surrounding community.

Students can engage in sustainability courses abroad by taking GEOG 491 – Urban Sustainability. A Mini-Term course from May 9-29 in Freiburg, Germany.
