Sustainability Studies

Students wanting to change their education focus may choose to take some courses to get back on track. A course is also beneficial to those who are currently working and want to expand their skills to improve their future career outlook.

What are courses in sustainability studies? These are designed for students who care about the environment and want to be involved in sustainability management solutions. Each program will vary in its course offerings and focus, and some will have a more general approach while others explore specific subjects. Examples of topics include energy management in buildings, energy intensity of food production, new transportation technologies, renewable energy systems, and energy security. Focused subject areas may be sustainable supply chain management, greenhouse emissions, environmental economics, and environmental toxicology.

Students develop a number of beneficial skills by taking these courses. Some examples of abilities that may lead to enhanced career options include problem solving, critical thinking, and effective oral and written communication skills.

Students who avoid getting a higher education because they think it will cost too much may think differently when looking at courses. Many of them are short in duration, which makes them more affordable, and they can typically be taken part-time or online so one can still earn a living while going to school.

Careers in the sustainability field can be found in the humanities, social sciences, and biological sciences. The actual career paths can differ greatly, but in some ways the jobs promote social responsibility, environmental protection, and profitability. Specific titles may include civil engineer, industrial production manager, atmospheric and space scientist, chief sustainability executive, data entry technician, outreach coordinator, environmental policy director, natural resource manager, and international development researcher.
