The goal of Sustainability Studies is to create ecologically and socially appropriate solutions to manage our human needs, impacts with the built environment, and the emerging green economy within the capacity of nature without compromising future generations. The goal is to educate students on the importance of sustainability and then train them how to become sustainable not only in their everyday lives, but in their careers as well. Students will be prepared to transfer to sustainability related programs at the university level, be at an advantage for jobs in the coming green economy, be positioned to develop new businesses and other employment opportunities, and become more engaged citizens.
Careers associated with this program have a salary range from $30,000 to over $208,000 with an average salary of $102,000.
