Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by College

We must strive to live in a sustainable relationship with Earth’s finite resources. The goal of the sustainability minor is to provide broad, interdisciplinary training related to local and global environmental problems. Students in the sustainability minor examine scientific, cultural, economic, and policy aspects of sustainability and are provided skills in how to recognize and overcome barriers to achieving sustainability.

Program Requirements

All courses taken to satisfy requirements for a minor in sustainability must be completed with a grade of C- or higher. Environmental science and policy majors may double-count up to 7 credits of courses used in their major toward the minor. No ESP courses in this minor may be used toward another environmental science and policy minor.

Minimum number of credits required for the minor: 19.


Additional Courses

  • One sustainability-related interdisciplinary course (ESP 2XX or 3XX) Credits: 3
  • Two environmental analysis-related courses Credits: 6
