a. Example – Undergraduate Certificate in Sustainability: The University College offers an undergraduate Certificate in Sustainability. This twelve credit interdisciplinary certificate will provide an opportunity for students to further their knowledge and skills to contribute to sustainable systems from the viewpoint of different disciplines, to help them become effective leaders and agents of change for sustainability, and to make them more competitive in the changing job market as some sectors move to a green collar economy. http://www.temple.edu/bulletin/Academic_programs/university_college/sustainability.htm
Example – BA in Environmental Studies: Environmental Studies is an interdisciplinary major offered by the Department of Geography and Urban Studies that examines the nature, causes and consequences of human interactions with the environment. Students in Environmental Studies gain the intellectual and methodological tools to understand and address the crucial environmental issues of our time and the impact on individuals, society, and the planet. Students are introduced to a physical lab science, an understanding of the economic system, and social science methods in order to prepare for our core courses. The Environmental Studies core courses are designed to develop the theoretical and methodological frameworks and tools necessary to understand the relationships between people and their environment as they interact through local to global connections. Students examine environmental policy and the role of political institutions; environmental decision-making; natural hazards and risk assessment; environmental ethics and legal issues; and environmental justice. The electives give students the opportunity to develop an area of emphasis around their particular interests.
