Courses Where Sustainability is Relevant to Objectives

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.

Below is a list of courses identified through a faculty survey in which sustainability is relevant to the course objectives.  This list includes sustainability focused/related course in addition to courses where the relationship to sustainability is not as significant.
