The Energy and Sustainability minor is designed to provide both business and non-business majors with an interdisciplinary approach to broad issues in energy and sustainability. The minor will educate students on the basics of energy sources, fossil fuels, and the future of energy. In addition to a common introductory and capstone course, the minor offers a blend of courses in technology, architecture, political science, and natural science.
Coursework will focus on topics such as existing, transitional, and alternative energy sources, as well as energy and sustainability from the perspectives of economics and business, architecture and design, and public policy and education. Students will also have the opportunity to meet key contacts in the energy field and business community.
The minor is administered through the Bauer College and is an interdisciplinary collaboration with other colleges and departments across campus. Interested students do not have to declar the minor to take the introductory course.
