Section Description

This one-credit fall session course will provide a glimpse into the potential employment in the sustainability field, with a specific emphasis on municipal employment, while also introducing students to basic information on the core principals and required skills.

At the same time, we'll see what it takes to succeed in the sustainability arena, looking closely at organizations and professional positions of interest to students in the class.
