ENS 401 Sustainability Capstone Seminar

Sustainability is an inherently interdisciplinary field despite the fact that its constituent sub-disciplines are often taught in isolation. The purpose of this seminar is to encourage synthesis of sustainability knowledge across major disciplines (i.e., natural sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities), which will be developed through student-led discussion of relevant literature and team-based projects. Through these projects, students will identify a sustainability issue in the local community, develop economic and environmental impact assessments, create a solution proposal, and present their findings to the local community. This course is a required component of the Minor degree in Sustainability.
