Environmental Sustainability


Climate change and environmental sustainability are among the greatest challenges that we face in the coming decades. Urban offers many classes that address different aspects of our relations with the natural world, while building upon and making connections to students' prior knowledge from other disciplines. Many of our environmental sustainability classes include field trips as central components. Student understanding, classroom activities and major assessments all proceed from these field experiences.

These courses span multiple disciplines, including science, history, English. By taking Urban’s Environmental Sustainability classes, students will expand their knowledge, personal connection and contextualization of key sustainability challenges.
