Why is true sustainability so hard to achieve?
Behind every environmentally friendly practice is a web of consequences, trade-offs, feedbacks, and barriers — and this undergraduate minor administered by the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) will help you develop a systems-level perspective of the economic, environmental and social dimensions of sustainability to help you navigate them.
The Sustainability, Energy, and Environment Fellows Program (SEE FP) is a campuswide undergraduate minor that prepares students for pursuing careers in the corporate sector, nonprofit organizations, government agencies and environmental advocacy groups.
The program is open to all students, though sophomores are preferred (students are encouraged to apply in the spring semester of their freshman year). The Minor requires 16-18 credits to be obtained by selecting from a specified list of courses (see below) in consultation with an adviser from iSEE.
The SEE FP is being offered in partnership with six academic units — the Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics (ACE), the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), the School of Integrative Biology (SIB), the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences (NRES), the School of Earth, Society and Environment (SESE), and the Department of Urban and Regional Planning (DURP) — which are also contributing teaching faculty.

This program is funded in part by the Center for Global Studies Title VI Grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Education for 2014-2018.
