Minor in Sustainability

“Sustainability—cultural and physical—should be a concern in all that we do,” says Professor Samantha Salden Teach. Toward that end, the School of Architecture encourages its students to consider pursuing a Minor in Sustainability. Open to students in all majors and colleges, the minor consists of a required gateway course called Sustainability: Principles and Practices (3 credit hours), three electives selected from an approved list (totaling 9 credit hours), and a capstone seminar (1 credit hour) and experience (2 credit hours). The current course listing and requirements of the minor are available from the College of Science. “The goal of this new minor is to foster more holistic thinking about sustainability,” Professor Salden Teach says, “and to open greater avenues for interdisciplinary study, research, and discussion.”
