Are you passionate about making a difference in the world?
Our changing world presents challenges that leaders in all sectors are called upon to address. Business, government, nonprofit and community leaders need to be prepared to effectively address complex social, environmental and economic issues, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, social inequities, water and food scarcity. The Sustainability Double degree and Minor provide students with a rich interdisciplinary curriculum exploring sustainability issues in the world today. fosters the knowledge, skills and abilities to address complex sustainability issues in communities and workplaces.
In step with the interdisciplinary nature of sustainability, the degree was designed to complement all OSU degree programs and is to be earned as a second Bachelor’s degree in addition to a major area of study. Students are finding that the additional credit hours of the degree can be easily incorporated into their desired academic timeline. We work with each student and their primary advisor to ensure that graduation requirements are met in a timely manner.
Students may obtain a Bachelor of Science, Sustainability after completing 36 credits of required and elective courses and a practicum, such as an internship or research project.
Students may earn a Sustainability Minor after completing 27 credits of required and elective courses.
