Mercyhurst University has offered a minor in sustainability studies since 2006. Students are required to take two core sustainability courses — one that introduces students to sustainability theories, principles and strategies and one about climate change — in addition to four elective courses, which could include courses in natural science, history, politics or literature. A minor in sustainability studies will educate Mercyhurst students about renewable energy, sustainable food production and how to engage in environmental initiatives.
