Does the institution offer at least one sustainability-focused major, degree program, or the equivalent for undergraduate students?:
Yes

The name of the sustainability-focused, undergraduate degree program (1st program):
Environment and Sustainability

A brief description of the undergraduate degree program (1st program):

ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY
The Environment and Sustainability major "prepare[s] students to analyze and address complex environmental issues from a variety of perspectives. Because all environmental systems are connected, issues such as climate change, land use, sustainable development, pollution, human and ecosystem health, and sustainable energy, food, and water systems cannot be studied in isolation. Facing these challenges requires basic knowledge in a variety of disciplines including the natural sciences, physical sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Through a core of common coursework, students develop a foundation in both science and policy. A focus on place-based study and the integration of knowledge across disciplines allows for creative examination of real-world problems on local, regional, national, and international levels."

The name of the sustainability-focused undergraduate minor, concentration or certificate (1st program):
Religion and the Environment

A brief description of the undergraduate minor, concentration or certificate (1st program):

RELIGION AND THE ENVIRONMENT
The Religion and the Environment Minor "encourages students to integrate religious insights and spiritual experience with the natural and social sciences to better understand how religion and the natural world affect one another. Accordingly, the Minor includes coursework in natural and social environmental science along with coursework in religion. Because the Minor encourages students to reflect on their own spiritual experience and beliefs as they relate to the environment, it culminates in a capstone experiential course involving environmentally related service or action along with reflection on the meaning of that engagement."
