Social Change Minor

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

The Social Change Minor is a great complement to any major for UofL students interested in gaining valuable experience for careers in social movements or for a lifetime of engaged citizenship. Core and elective courses help students to pursue their particular interests—for example, the environment, civil rights, politics, deindustrialization, labor, or war & peace—from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

In 2011-12 and again in 2015-16, the Department of Urban and Public Affairs formally proposed a new undergraduate degree program in Sustainability. In 2012, the program received academic approval, but was put on hold until funding could be identified. In 2015, funding was secured and the proposal is currently working its way through the approval process again with an intention to launch the interdisciplinary Bachelors Degree in Sustainability in Fall 2016.

Currently, through the Liberal Studies Program, undergraduates interested in crafting a coherent, interdisciplinary course of study can major in topics such as Eco Literarcy and Sustainability, Green Studies and Earth Ethics, Environmental Studies and Activism, Environmental Change, Peace Studies, Pre-Environmental Law, and many more. http://louisville.edu/liberalstudies/

We also currently offer undergraduates the following options for pursuing sustainability-related degrees:
> Bachelor of Science in Applied Geography with concentration in Environmental Analysis: http://louisville.edu/geography/undergraduate/enviro.doc
> Certificate in Peace, Nonviolence & Conflict Transformation Studies: http://louisville.edu/peace
> Interdisciplinary Social Change Minor: http://louisville.edu/socialchange
