Sustainability Topic: Curriculum
Content Type: Academic Programs
Program Type: Specialization/Concentration/Emphasis


The special concentration is intentionally more flexible than the major, given that students have their major classes as well. However, its structure allows students to benefit from the program’s cross-disciplinary courses and to build the expertise that will allow them to address the fundamental issue of how to move toward a trajectory of sustainability. A minimum of nine courses and a practicum are required for the special concentration.
