Sustainability Minor


The sustainability minor is interdisciplinary, drawing on the expertise across CLAS departments: anthropology, biology, chemistry, communication, economics, environmental sciences, geography, geology, history, economics, philosophy, physics and political science.  The core courses are taught by a faculty team from natural sciences and social sciences, who will present the concepts from the empirical and humanistic perspectives.  The teaching team changes each term so that faculty from any given CLAS department will rotate through the core courses every 3-4 years.

The minor comprises 18 hours, distributed as follows:

  • two core courses that introduce students to the systems theories that document how living things affect and are affected by their environments
  • two electives chosen from an approved list of CLAS courses
  • students select either a field study, internship, service learning or related travel study course
  • capstone course in sustainability
