Bachelor of Science - Sustainability

 In the Sustainability program at JU, the question of sustainability is addressed by a variety of disciplines: economics, business, biology, chemistry, geology, geography, political science, ethics and philosophy. The common goal of the courses in the major is to encourage students to look at the complex of social, economic and environmental systems as a unity and to enquire into the conditions that will permit all three to flourish. The Sustainability major at JU brings into sharper focus the question asked by education in the liberal arts and sciences:

  • What is the best way of life for free people in a free society?
  • What are the conditions of human flourishing?
  • How can we harmonize the needs of the environment, the economy, and society to best sustain all three?

The courses students will take in the Sustainability major will clearly show how this question relates to the complex challenges we currently face. By uniting courses in business, the sciences, the humanities and the social sciences, the Sustainability major teaches the thinking, skills, and values that prepare students for a wide range of environmental, energy, and policy related jobs. As business, government, and non-governmental organizations respond to the complex task of reconciling continued growth with limited natural resources, there will be an increasing need for workers with an interdisciplinary training that permits them to grasp these problems in more than one way. The JU sustainability program meets that need by training students in a new interdisciplinary thinking that will prepare them for the challenges of the new millennium.
