Sustainability

Students at any college can earn an award (degree or cert) in any of these programs. However, students may need to complete certain courses at other colleges within the District.

Program Overview

Sustainability is not just a buzzword, it’s a way of life — and a possible career for you. Environmental studies allow you to explore the current and future interactions between human and natural systems. With a focus in Sustainability, you can analyze ideas of sustainable development at a local, regional, and global level – and maybe have a say in the best possible uses of our planet’s resources.

What role can you take on in this vital field? Students may go on to be sustainability specialists, compliance managers, environmental scientists, and soil and water conservationists. Familiarity with sustainability can also boost your career in adjacent fields like environmental reporting, city and regional planning, landscape architecture, construction, interior design, urban planning, and business.

It can start today. Make your future in sustainability happen.
