Sustainability is classically defined as a stool with three
legs—the social, the economic, and the environmental. The purpose of
this program is to address the challenges of sustainability by balancing the
humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.
The minor equips students
to broaden their thinking about the origins of sustainability problems and
possible solutions to include human institutions, ethics, and cultures as well
as technologies and natural sciences.
In so doing, the minor aims to foster
student agency with regard to research on sustainability, responsibility to
both human and non-human life, and civic engagement with local sustainability
