Government, nonprofit, corporate and faith leaders – they’re all talking about sustainability. Through a minor in sustainability from Creighton University, students can find their voice in this conversation and help make a more livable future in their community and around the world.

Through courses taught by expert faculty in business, economics, sociology, communication, theology, philosophy, political science, biology, chemistry and more, our Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in sustainability equips students with a wide range of knowledge and skills. Students will gain the ability to problem-solve successfully with others in formulating, recommending and implementing sustainable solutions. You can choose to take some courses in an area that interests you, developing your own particular interests in sustainability. In addition, all students will gain valuable hands-on experience through a sustainability internship.

As part of the Jesuit, Catholic educational experience, the program includes a personal reflection or “discernment” component. This provides a unique opportunity for students to reflect on their experience in the program and how they will commit to caring for creation, both now and in your career.
