Undergraduate minor in Sustainability

Undergraduate minor in SustainabilityMinor in Sustainability

Organizations, communities, and even individuals are looking for ways to operate and live more sustainably; to consume fewer nonrenewable resources and create less waste; to create systems that make people prosperous, healthy, and productive; and to work toward a better world for future generations. Add the minor in Sustainability to any undergraduate degree program at the University of Wyoming to learn how to understand, analyze, and implement sustainable solutions.

Students pursuing the Sustainability minor from the Haub School choose one of three tracks:

  • General: Choose courses in design, environment, and culture/society to complement your career interests.
  • Food Systems: Choose courses that explore the ecological, economic, policy, cultural, and social justice aspects of our food system.
  • Energy: Choose courses that explore the water, climate, and community health and development aspects of a sustainable energy future.



The Sustainability minor requires 18 credit hours. You’ll start with a foundations of sustainability course and end with the capstone course, Campus Sustainability, where you’ll design and implement a real project to better UW.  In between you’ll study ethics and choose a custom set of elective courses to support your chosen track: general, food systems, or energy.
