Cross- Curricular Sustainability-Related Course Sections

A sustainability-related course section is one in which a particular professor has chosen to integrate sustainability concepts into the course content. This does not indicate additional work for students! Sustainability is simply used as context for achieving the same learning goals as other course sections. These offerings are excellent for students learning about sustainability for the first time or for those more familiar, to see it from a new perspective. Just make sure to register for the correct section!
