Sustainability Minor (COF Only)

The COF Minor in Sustainability is embedded in the international recognition that unsustainable pressures, resulting from human activity, threaten the natural systems on which human existence depends. These pressures often impact the most vulnerable members of society. The minor encourages students to explore connections between their specific career-directed studies to issues of the natural world, finite resources and social justice. COF Sustainability Minor Courses can be located here.

The requirements are six academic courses:

  • COF Environment Forum (to be taken twice) * Students DO NOT cross-register for this course. This course can be located during your regular home registration as ENVM2000 
  • 4 Elective Courses – students must take 4 courses that form a cohesive and thematic thread, selecting from at least two of the following categories
    • Policy/Economics
    • Social Equity
    • Environmental
