The minor requires 15 hours of approved classes. One class, CE/EnvE 5642 Sustainability (3 credit hours), is required of all students. Students also take at least two approved classes from each of two general categories: social science classes and science/technical classes (see below). Classes that meet the minor requirements in each category span many departments on campus, given the interdisciplinary nature of sustainability. At least nine credit hours must be from outside the student’s home degree program.
The curricula criteria for this minor, including lists of approved courses in the two general categories, is maintained by the Sustainability Program Board.
Interested students may contact a Sustainability Program Board Representative to apply for the minor and to receive assistance with meeting requirements.
