Penn Unveils New Sustainability Minor
OCTOBER 8, 2009
As the University begins its expansion of academic initiatives around sustainability, the main attraction for undergrads will most certainly be a new environmental minor: Sustainability and Environmental Management.
The program is an interdisciplinary minor formed through a partnership between the School of Arts and Sciences, the Wharton School, and the School of Engineering and Applied Science. It will provide students not only with the scientific aspects of sustainability, but also a keen ability to assess risk and change associated with environmental issues.
An exciting new offering from these undergraduate schools at Penn, this minor offers great breadth across the disciplines to confront key environmental challenges in today’s world.
