Sustainable Living

Issues of sustainable living involve every aspect of life. Humans are part of, and dependent upon, healthy functioning ecosystems. Sustainable living requires learning to live with ecosystem limits. Students increase their knowledge and awareness of environmental issues and problems, gain an understanding of ecology, and develop thinking and communication skills in order to help solve complex problems and move humanity toward a more sustainable future.  The minor consists of 20 credits with grades of C- or better, and no pass/fail courses.
