This minor introduces students to the three pillars of sustainability: society, economy, and environment. Through interdisciplinary coursework, the minor focuses on the connections that exist between social equity, economy, and environmental problems, and it builds student understanding of sustainable solutions that will meet the present and future needs of people and the biosphere. Students are encouraged to incorporate internships and directed studies into their program with the approval of the Sustainability Studies Coordinator.
