Sustainability Minor for non-business students
This is an interdisciplinary minor combining courses from the College of Business as well as the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, the College of Engineering, and the College of Arts and Letters. The minor requirements are the same for any student regardless of what is listed as their “home” college. Because of this, the minor requirements are somewhat different from other minors in the College of Business.
Of the 15 credit hours (5 courses) required in the Sustainability minor, 12 credit hours (4 courses) must be unique to other required courses in a student’s degree program. This means that only one course may “double dip” as another requirement in their degree program – be that a major, minor or other degree requirement. If more than one course naturally occurs as a requirement in their degree program, the student would need to select additional course(s) from the list of approved electives for the minor so that they achieve the 12 unique hours. Both the College of Business and a student’s home college will review the minor requirements to certify completion for graduation.
