Sustainable Studies Minor
Designed by faculty in multiple disciplines, the 18-credit SIS Minor at La Roche
provides students the opportunity to study the principles and engage in the practices
of environmental justice. This minor crosses boundaries to show that sustainability
and environmental justice are part of every discipline – from literature to sociology
to interior design and beyond.
Students will have the opportunity to examine real-world problems, integrating
information from their major field and a variety of disciplines to address the
most important environmental issues of the present and the future. For instance,
students may become involved in calculating a company’s greenhouse gas
emissions and exploring how to lower them. No matter their major, students will
see how sustainability relates to their area of study.
