Environmental Studies
Incorporate materials from the appropriate disciplines to describe or to explain environmental problems and possible solutions.

Geography majors will develop an understanding of scientific inquiry methods and important theories used in the study of geophysical processes and dynamics that affect Earth's geologic, hydrologic, and atmospheric systems.

In addition to the program-level learning outcomes of the departments listed above, the Bryan School of Business and Economics adopted "sustainability" as one of the core elements of its mission (see http://bae.uncg.edu/about-bryan/mission/ ), with an attendant requirement that all students in all departments take a course that significantly emphasizes sustainability. The students impacted by this requirement should begin to graduate in 2014-15, when the number of graduates covered by sustainability learning outcomes will increase significantly.
