The study of environmental sustainability examines the balance between our society's ability to meet current needs while minimizing our environmental impact for future generations. At Lycoming, students have the unique opportunity not only to research the concepts of sustainability, but also to work with experienced faculty and professionals to develop and apply solutions.
Students minoring in environmental sustainability will take courses from a variety of academic departments, including business, biology, economics, political science, philosophy, and psychology.
To compliment their classroom experience, students are encouraged to complete a practicum or internship in the field of environmental sustainability. This experience will often relate to the students' academic major, allowing that student to apply their knowledge of sustainability to their chosen field.
