Sustainability studies focuses on the interdisciplinary benefits of the sustainability concept. We explore how to make a more sustainable and equitable future by developing combined skill sets from fields including business, the social sciences, the arts and humanities, environmental science, and public health. Students:

  • Engage in interdisciplinary learning at multiple scales (local, national, global)
  • Learn systems-thinking approaches for identifying and resolving sustainability-related problems
  • Develop skills to promote equitable community, collaboration, and collective action while addressing sustainability-related challenges
  • Develop professional and transferable skills for employment in sustainability professions
