The study of sustainability bridges the arts and humanities, social sciences, and the physical and life sciences. The Sustainability Studies Track will provide you with a broad introduction to the complex system-scale challenges of sustainability, as well as the tools needed to address problems that transcend solely social or environmental domains.

The Sustainability Track attracts students from a variety of backgrounds and interests. They typically have some of the following qualities:

  • Interest in sustainability, human-environment interaction, sustainable food systems, and/or environmental ethics.
  • Desire to take courses from the arts and humanities, social sciences, and physical and life sciences.
  • Interest in a career in areas such as environmental planning and coordination, environmental education and communications, sustainability coordination or consulting in the private or public sector, green design, environmental law or public affairs, or graduate study.
  • Desire to help make the world a better place.
