FLEXIBLE CURRICULUM

Gain a comprehensive overview of the field of sustainability through a flexible curriculum tailored to your specific needs.

Many courses can double-count for your major or general education requirements, and advisors are on hand to create a plan that works for you.

DIVERSE PERSPECTIVES

Join a classroom of students representing a wide range of majors in an environment designed to promote free exchange of ideas.

Tackle problems in ways you never thought you could, combining ideas from your peers from different disciplines with your own knowledge and experience.

REAL-WORLD EXPERIENCE

Practice what you’ve learned through ENVS492, the Sustainability Capstone Experience, in the fall of your Senior Year.

Work with Fortune 500 companies, local governments, and nonprofit organizations to solve real-world sustainability challenges.

Students from the SEE Fellows Program meet with capstone partner organizations in preparation for their ENVS 492 projects.

Students enrolled in the CEW capstone course (ESE/ENGL 498) have the opportunity to submit their work for publication in the new iSEE online publication for student environmental writing, Q Magazine. Selected students will work closely with the editors and production staff of Q to develop the article to a professional, publishable standard.
