Undergraduate Minor

Organizations, communities, and even individuals are looking for ways to operate and live more sustainability; 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.
