Sustainability Studies Concentration

In coordination with the Sustainability Studies Program at Mercyhurst, students majoring in Chemistry (B.A. or B.S.) or Biochemistry may pursue a concentration in Sustainability Studies. The goals of this program are to provide students with the following academic experiences:

(1) An introductory sustainability course and capstone research experience at the beginning and end of the academic program, respectively, to cohesively provide both an introduction to sustainability and an intensive real-world experiential learning component. (Tier I)

(2) An interdisciplinary overview of the questions, problems and potential solutions comprising the broadly defined study of sustainability. Portions of this coursework will overlap with the core curriculum. (Tier II)

(3) A rigorous and science-centered study of how the chemistry and biochemistry disciplines intersect with sustainability. Portions of this coursework will overlap with Chemistry or Biochemistry major requirements. (Tier III)
