Environment and Sustainability Minor

The Environment and Sustainability minor introduces students to the world of environmental studies by encouraging them to explore environmental problem-solving from multiple disciplinary perspectives (e.g. economics, political science, sociology, ethics, psychology, and architecture). Only by familiarizing ourselves with the perspectives and tools of disciplines such as these can we hope to meaningfully address the serious environmental problems facing us at the local, national and global levels.
