New Undergraduate Minor in Environmental and Sustainability Studies
Understanding human-environment interactions and their connection with ecological, societal, and economic processes at local, regional, and global scales is a core competency in today’s world. The study of sustainability bridges the arts and humanities, social sciences, and the physical and life sciences. It complements traditional disciplines by offering an opportunity for education in the area of coupled natural and human systems that encompasses study of the environment, society, and economy. The minor, awarded jointly by the College of Arts and Science and the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, will be administered by the Integrated Program in the Environment. Students who are interested in learning more about the minor may contact academic advisor Carlin C. Schrag (firstname.lastname@example.org).
