Program Overview

The Bachelor of Sustainability (B.Sust.) degree is a four-year direct-entry interdisciplinary program blending practice, theory, and research methodology in participating concentrations. Students take a set of core integrative courses specific to sustainability along with a set of advanced courses in one of the concentrations:

  • Environmental Analytics
  • Environmental Conservation and Management
  • Environmental Humanities
  • Green Chemistry

The curriculum consists of 39 credits from core integrative courses, along with a minimum of 42 credits from concentration courses. Remaining credits will be chosen from relevant elective courses in consultation with a program advisor to enable students to achieve the necessary breadth to become well-versed in sustainability matters on a local-to-global scale.
