Does the institution offer at least one sustainability-focused major, degree program, or the equivalent for undergraduate students (I.e. an interdisciplinary academic program that concentrates on sustainability as an integrated concept)?:
Yes

Name of the sustainability-focused undergraduate degree program:
Environmental Science

A brief description of the undergraduate degree program:

Environmental science merges the natural environment with human actions. We therefore encourage our students to take relevant courses in the social sciences and humanities as well to learn how humans have shaped their environments or, in return, are shaped by the world in which they live. Relevant courses may include classes in public policy and law and environmental economics, but also classes in history or English. Again, students can choose from a large (and often changing) list of relevant courses across a wide range of disciplines to customize the program to their interests and career goals. The Bachelor of Arts option allows students to take even more advanced courses in the social sciences and humanities.

Name of the sustainability-focused, undergraduate degree program (2nd program):
Urban Studies

A brief description of the undergraduate degree program (2nd program):

Urban Studies program is to help students build an interdisciplinary understanding of how urban dynamics shape both global interdependence and local spaces through a rigorous four-year program of classroom learning, field research, study away, and other forms of urban engagement in Hartford and beyond. The Urban Studies program provides academic strengthening of Trinity’s strong links with Hartford as a distinctive asset, and it is a critical supporting mechanism for the College’s urban-global mission and urban-global curricular emphasis.

The Urban Studies Major provides a broadly interdisciplinary understanding of how urban dynamics shape both global interdependence and local spaces. It emphasizes how cities are increasingly critical to the organization of economic, social, and cultural activities that shape and transform human experience.

Does the institution offer one or more sustainability-focused minors, concentrations or certificates for undergraduate students?:
Yes

Name of the sustainability-focused undergraduate minor, concentration or certificate:
Environmental Studies

A brief description of the undergraduate minor, concentration or certificate:

The minor is an option for students who do not wish to major in environmental science but wish to enhance their scientific background in conjunction with other interests in the environment. The minor provides the opportunity to apply the interdisciplinary study of environmental science across the curriculum. Specific issues addressed by courses in the minor include the conservation of biodiversity, government environmental policies, economic implications of public or private management of natural resources, ethical implications associated with human impacts on ecosystems, cultural responses to environmental change, and other environmental issues that face society in the new century. In order to declare a minor in environmental science, the student must meet with the environmental science program director.
