The Major Program
The Sustainable Environmental Design major is intended to build student understanding and skills related to creation of sustainable communities and landscapes. Coursework emphasizes urban and environmental design, sustainable development theory & practice, green building, local government planning & decision-making, community dynamics & organizations, and written, graphic, and oral presentation of sustainability strategies.
The Sustainable Environmental Design major is particularly suited for students who are interested in the physical form & design of communities and related public & private processes. It is focused on the physical environment of communities and the process of designing, planning for, and regulating the built landscape and the place-making considerations involved in creating sustainable communities.
