The minor in Sustainability Studies is directed toward students seeking to better understand environmental considerations in industry, government, non-profit, and academic institutions. Courses enhance students' major area of study by providing links between science, engineering, mathematics, business, economics, and the humanities. The minor takes a problem-solving approach to the discipline as students learn to apply broad knowledge to specific institutional, local, or global problems. Students in this minor develop valuable insights into the nature of current sustainability practices. Students select five courses from the following list of courses. Students must fulfill all prerequisites for the courses chosen.
