Starting in the 2015-2016 academic year, Loyola University Maryland is offering a new undergraduate minor in environmental and sustainability studies.

The minor was created and developed by faculty from a variety of disciplines, including biology, chemistry, communication, economics, engineering, fine arts, history, law and social responsibility, philosophy, theology, and writing. Like many other minors at Loyola, environmental and sustainability studies takes an interdisciplinary approach to pedagogy, integrating topics from multiple academic departments. Sustainability, and topics around the environment, also speak to the Loyola’s Jesuit mission.
