As we do around the middle of each semester, Academic Sustainability Programs has produced a guide to sustainability courses offered at Auburn for Spring Semester 2017. This guide can be used by students as you get ready to complete your spring registration this month, and by faculty to peruse the variety of course offerings as you consider new courses to develop.
Our spring list includes all of the courses that can be used toward the Minor in Sustainability Studies. These courses also can be taken by students on campus who are not pursuing the minor, but who would like to learn more about sustainability-related topics. In particular, the Introduction to Sustainability course (SUST 2000) can be taken by students from all majors, and used as a Social Sciences course in your core curriculum.
To help with your course planning, we list the times that each course is offered, the instructor, and their contact information. We also include in our list some courses that have not been formally approved for the minor, but which are acceptable as substitutes for approved minor electives.
Our guide contains a second list that shows the pattern of sustainability course offerings over the past few years, so that you can do more long-range planning and see which semesters each course tends to be offered (spring, summer, and/or fall), to help you plan beyond just this spring.
To download our these new course lists, visit our program’s NEWS webpage.
And, feel free to peruse other pages on our website, to learn more about the minor and our other programs. As always, feel free to contact me if any questions.
Happy Course Planning!
