Are you interested in issues surrounding sustainability?

If so consider the sustainability minor now offered at Colorado State University-Pueblo that is available to any enrolled student with a declared major.

Two of the required courses for the minor are being offered in the fall 2017 semester.  These courses are Environmental Science (CHEM 125) and Introduction to Sustainability (EN 109).

Environmental Science/Lab (3 credits/1 credit) is an overview of terrestrial and aquatic environments, the atmosphere, energy, climate change, and natural resources. Emphasis is placed on sustainability needs and challenges. This course is a guaranteed transfer (GT) course.

Course offered MWF 10:10am to 11:05 am, Lab offered F, 12:10pm to 2:10pm.

Introduction to Sustainability (2 credits) offers an interdisciplinary foundation for sustainability including systems theory, humans and the environments, and the social and economic dimensions of sustainability.

Offered Wednesdays from 12:20pm to 2:10pm.

The sustainability minor will provide you with the unique opportunity to position yourself strategically in an ever-changing workforce. It will challenge you to think systemically, and globally, while shaping you to become a leader who will affect positive change.

At CSU-Pueblo, three core areas in Sustainability have been identified to shape the definition of this minor and fit the teaching, research and diversity specific to this campus:

  • Science & Technology
  • Economics
  • Social/Cultural

All of the areas are interconnected and play an integral role in the minor while serving as guides for student selected curricular pathways.
