Sustainability is commonly defined as meeting the needs of our present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their goals. The sustainability minor is an 18- credit interdisciplinary program that is designed to assist students who are interested in pursuing a career that involves practicing sustainable practices. The minor focuses on how individuals can focus on these sustainable practices within the environment and how these practices impact both economic and social issues within local, national, and international contexts. The minor will be applicable to students from all majors due to the focus on how these sustainability principles can be applied to all academic disciplines and professional fields. More information regarding the minor can be obtained from the Department of Geology and Geography.
