New undergraduate sustainability certificate

Learn more about the new certificate available for the Fall 2021 Semester.

For the 2021-22 school year, the U will launch a revised sustainability certificate that seamlessly weaves sustainability into the fibers of its undergraduate education.

The undergraduate sustainability certificate, which has been dormant for several years, will take on a new form in the fall of 2021, integrating sustainability into students’ general education and empowering them to approach their primary courses of study through a sustainability lens. By engaging students in the scientific, artistic, technological and human dimensions of sustainability, this certificate offers something to everyone—from budding scientists to humanities scholars.

Through this certificate, students from all majors will gain the knowledge and skills they need to leverage their unique passions and skillsets toward building a more sustainable world,” said Jennifer Watt, associate director of the Environmental and Sustainability Studies program.

Faculty must apply for sustainability designation by April 15, 2021. Students, remember to keep an eye out for SUSL and SUSC courses this fall.
