Open to all undergraduate students at the University of Arkansas, the sustainability minor is an 18-credit program drawing instruction from faculty and courses across all colleges and schools at the U of A. Because it is interdisciplinary, the minor enhances and reflects each student's individual academic and career interests. The purpose of the minor in sustainability is to provide foundational knowledge and skills related to the emerging discipline of sustainability and to prepare students to become innovators within their diverse fields.

Among the top 10 minors on campus, over 130 students are currently declared. Would you like to join them on this exciting journey?

For more information, go to the Sustainability Minor page, contact professor David Hyatt, or see your regular program adviser.
