- Luther College offers both a Major and a Minor in Environmental Studies as well as many courses open to all students. From biology to philosophy, geology to sociology, Environmental Studies is a truly interdisciplinary and engaged course of study. Many of our courses utilize the local area for intensive study beyond the classroom, and all of our students are encouraged to broaden their horizons through study abroad.
- Luther's strategic plan calls to "Make sustainability a part of every student’s learning experience" with a specific strategy to "Invite Luther faculty and staff to integrate attention to place and to sustainable community into our curriculum...Sponsor workshops to help achieve this goal."
