The Sustainability Studies Minor is an interdisciplinary program drawing students from all colleges and departments who want to learn about sustainability, with no pre-requisites. Students must earn at least 15 credits through five or more courses. A current listing of required core courses and all electives is at University Catalog Sustainability Studies Minor. The program is flexible, allowing students to petition for courses that are not listed to count towards the Minor, allowing study abroad to count for up to 6 credits and allowing courses that count towards the major or another minor to count towards the Sustainability Studies Minor. The requirements are easy to follow:
- Two core courses, SUST 3003 and SUST 4004, are required for the Sustainability Studies Minor and provide an immersion in the history, practice and future of sustainability.
- Three or more elective courses, drawn from at least 3 of 4 categories, are required for the Sustainability Studies Minor. The elective categories are:
- Economics and Policy
- Social Sciences and Humanities
- Biophysical Sciences
- Design and Technology
- An optional internship course, SUST 4096, matches students to sustainability-related opportunities and may count as an elective in the Sustainability Studies Minor.
- An optional course on environmental justice, SUST 3017, offers community-engaged learning and may count as an elective in the Sustainability Studies Minor
