The Search for Sustainability Classes

October 8, 2009

Want to green your course load this semester? Find sustainability-themed courses easily by using the online course search through Penn InTouch.

The newly designed Penn InTouch interface now provides students an easy way to find classes of interest during Course Selection Days, including new and exciting academic opportunities in sustainability.

Penn InTouch now boasts a keyword search function where students can search for environmental sustainability courses. Other alterations to the system, such as expandable menu items, convenience links, and a revised registration process, have made course registration much more accessible to the users.

Students can access information on course schedules, course topics, and even course syllabus before they choose to register. With a revamped Penn InTouch, greening your class schedule is as simple as typing “sustainability”.
