Welcome to the Sustainability Studies Program

The Sustainability Studies Program at the University of Dayton provides our students an understanding and appreciation of the interdisciplinary aspects of sustainability, energy, and the environment. Our goal is to equip students with the tools to implement sustainability in their careers.

The SEE Minor

The Sustainability, Energy, and the Environment (SEE) Minor at the University of Dayton strives to provide (students) a deep understanding and appreciation of the interdisciplinary aspects of sustainability, energy, and the environment and to equip students with the tools to implement sustainability in their careers – here at UD and beyond. Students in the SEE program engage with faculty, staff, peers, student organizations, and local community partners to achieve hands-on experience through integrative learning, research, service, and community events.

The Graduate Certificate in Sustainability

Students earning the Certificate in Sustainability (SUS) take two sustainability courses: Foundations in Sustainability and Applied Sustainability. They also choose six semester hours of coursework from the social sciences, the physical sciences and engineering, allowing them to custom fit the certificate to their personal and professional goals and needs.

Preparing Sustainability Professionals

The University of Dayton is preparing students and professionals to serve the common good by offering graduate education in the growing field of sustainability. In January, the University launched a new sustainability studies graduate certificate and the required introductory course for the certificate, Foundations in Sustainability, is being piloted during the spring 2018 semester.
