Minor in Sustainable Development

The curriculum of the Sustainable Development minor is built on the premise that sustainable development means reconciling the need for economic growth, particularly in developing nations, with the related problems of the degradation of natural resources and destruction of the social fabric. Rather than pit environmentalists against corporate leaders, the goal of this set of courses is to help students understand how corporations, environmental organizations and local and national governments, might work together to solve vexing problems.
