Environment and Sustainability Programs

The Environment & Sustainability Programs include a certificate program, undergraduate minor, and graduate minor.

From accountants to zoologists, and all majors in between, this suite of Environment and Sustainability Programs is designed to enhance understanding of the complex environmental challenges humanity faces in the 21st century. It gives students an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in an environmental area of interest. Students will study the technical aspects of issues such as climate change and energy, and learn how our values, beliefs, and governmental policies affect how these issues are addressed. Students will also learn about sustainable practices and lifestyle choices that can reduce an individual's ecological footprint. Two courses are required of all students: Introduction to Environmental Science (ENS 2103) and Environmental Science Practicum (ENS 4102), leaving 12 hours for the student to select from three broad categories: Humanities, Social Sciences, and Science & Engineering.
