Minor in Environment and Urban Sustainability

The Minor in Environment and Urban Sustainability (EUS) is offered to students to provide an understanding of sustainability issues as they relate to both the human and natural environments.

The Minor gives students the ability to grasp complex issues in a world of finite resources and to learn how to think about solutions and possibilities of creating sustainable actions in our environments. Analytical skills, critical thinking, confident decision making, and solution oriented results are the mainstay of the minor.

The EUS Minor enables students from varied disciplines to explore important challenges facing humanity, whether it is in the areas of environmental ethics, green businesses, greener cities, environmental decision making, or similar. The Minor will help students prepare for professional careers in their own area of study and for application to graduate programs.
