The Sustainability minor provides students a basic knowledge of sustainability and allows them to address a specific area within sustainability. The minor consists of basic courses addressing the three main components of sustainability and an integrated series of advanced courses related to applications of this basic principle.
Admission to a minor is open to students declared in a bachelor’s degree, the A.A.B. or A.A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree (not Individualized Program major). Students declared only in the A.A. or A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree in Individualized Program may not declare a minor. Students may not pursue a minor and a major in the same discipline.
