University of California, Riverside
Sustainability Studies B.S.

The Sustainability Studies degree offered by the Gender and Sexuality Studies Department investigates the historical and contemporary ways environments change, and are changed, by human activity. Focusing on a range of challenges to sustainability including climate change, air and water pollution, toxic contamination, energy demands, economic growth, agricultural production, and environmental injustice, the B.S. curriculum offers a comparative, interdisciplinary, transnational approach to the theories and practices of building a sustainable future. Courses in gender and sustainability, natural and earth sciences, engineering, health and medicine, cultural studies, policy, media, and social sciences prepare students to respond to challenges to local, regional and global sustainability. Students will be trained in feminist paradigms and methodologies associated with intersectionality, dialogue, and relation. Through in-depth, engaged learning experiences, this major educates global citizens who will be prepared for careers in industry, health care, public service, public advocacy, education, and social activism relevant to sustainability.
