Questions from Students
No! Please let your advisor know about the minor in Sustainability Studies. The minor is open to any major on campus.
If you take the two required classes, SUST 2000 (or HONR 1027) and SUST 5000, and nine credits of approved electives (or course contracts), with at least 6 of those credits at the 3000 level or above, and declared the minor in Sustainability Studies, it will show up on your transcript. To make sure you are on track, contact Ross Blair.
If the class is adjacent to sustainability, you can complete a course contract by adding extra sustainability content into the class, with the instructor’s approval. Contact the Director of the Academic Sustainability Program for more information, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have compiled a list of majors that are related to sustainability. Of course, any field can be more sustainable and if you minor in Sustainability Studies, it could help you figure out how to add sustainability to your career goals.
