Sustainability Minor

As an interdisciplinary program, it provides students with the opportunity to focus and refine the knowledge gained from their own fields of study by adding the perspective of other disciplines.

Minimum Grade Requirement: A minimum grade of C is required in any course in the Sustainability minor.

Residency Requirement: Students must complete at least 12 credits of the minor requirement at Marymount.
