Six academic units have come together to offer the SEE FP, a campuswide undergraduate minor through the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) to promote systems-level thinking about energy and sustainability and foster the development of an integrated view of the economy, society and the environment.
The minor provides selected students an opportunity to develop an integrated perspective on sustainability and understand the feedbacks, trade-offs and barriers to achieving it and their implications for decision-making.
The SEE FP will prepare students for pursuing careers in the corporate sector, nonprofit organizations, government agencies and environmental advocacy groups.
The SEE FP is being offered in partnership with six academic units — the Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics (ACE), the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), the School of Integrative Biology (SIB), the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences (NRES), the School of Earth, Society and Environment (SESE), and the Department of Urban and Regional Planning (DURP) — which are also contributing teaching faculty.
