As students continue to enroll for spring courses this month, our program has put together a worksheet listing details about each of the spring courses that are offered as part of our Minor in Sustainability Studies, for ease of schedule planning. It is accompanied by a worksheet listing the pattern of course offerings over the past several years, so that students contemplating this minor also can create a viable plan of study, including whether they can expect to take each course during the spring, summer, or fall semester during each of the upcoming years.

This worksheet resource also may be useful for students interested in taking sustainability-related courses even if you are not pursuing the minor, and for faculty to see what range of courses is offered each semester, and where your current or potential courses might fit in or fill a void. Many interesting courses that are not yet formally part of the minor also are listed.

Additionally, we post rotating news items about new courses coming up, special courses such as study abroad options, or simply courses in need of more advertising. If you teach an upcoming sustainability-related course that you would like to see specially advertised on our site, please send us a one-page flyer (pdf or ppt format) that we can link to our page (send to: chadwick@auburn.edu).

We hope that this curriculum-related resource will continue to be useful for students and faculty alike. Our goal is to broaden awareness about the diverse courses on campus available for learning about sustainability issues, and to assist in enhancing those course offerings.

Happy registering, and best wishes for your spring and summer course planning this month.
