Most modern problems are complex. Sustainable solutions to such problems require multidisciplinary approaches. The minor in sustainability creates a curriculum that will help students understand what sustainability is and how it is perceived within various disciplines. Students will take courses that specifically address the environmental, geopolitical or social aspects of sustainability.

Students from any discipline may pursue the Sustainability minor. The requirements for the minor are as follows: Students must complete a minimum of 18 graduation credits (9 of which must be in coursework at or above the 300 level), including at least 3 credits in each of 3 categories: Natural/Physical Sciences, Social Sciences/Humanities, and Planning.
