Come join a dedicated group of committed students and faculty from across the university as together we work toward a more sustainable world!
The Sustainability Studies minor is an interdisciplinary program that draws from expertise across the university. The program conceptualizes “sustainability” as an interdisciplinary approach to knowledge production and action that focuses on “the health
and integrity of human societies and the natural world.”
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
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 projects.
