The Sustainability Studies & Environmental Stewardship (SSES) Minor is designed to encourage undergraduate students from any discipline to explore the three pillars of sustainability (economic, environmental and social) beyond course work in their major. The SSES minor will be administered by the Liberal Studies Program at MSU. Liberal Studies works across departments and across the university. The Liberal Studies degree values a broad, integrated and interdisciplinary approach to higher education. Interdisciplinary studies foster connections among disciplines and draw upon multiple areas of knowledge. Students choose one of three program options: Environmental Studies, Global and Multicultural, or Quaternity (on campus or online degree completion).
