Environmental Sustainability - MINOR

As of June 23, 2020, programs in this catalog will no longer be offered to new students at the North Miami campus.  At the close of the 2020-2021 academic year (subject to possible courses through the summer of 2021), no programs in this catalog will be offered to any students at the North Miami campus, as the Denver and North Miami campuses will be closing after the end of the 2020-2021 academic year (subject to possible courses through the summer of 2021).

The College of Arts & Sciences offers minors that enhance and strengthen the qualifications of graduates. They are intended to give students opportunities to develop expertise in an area that complements their major program. Real-world applications are embedded in the minors.  

This minor prepares students to understand the scientific, public policy and economic challenges of current environmental problems such as global climate change and renewable energy. Faced with balancing social, economic and environmental concerns, industry and community leaders are exploring sustainable business practices. Through coursework and field research, students develop the knowledge and skills needed to address sustainability issues and to navigate the emerging green economy.
