Sustainability Courses


  • ECO 105: This course will explore timely individual, business, and societal aspects of sustainability in the Anthropocene. It will examine the impacts that human decision-making, consumer choice, and technology have on a sustainable way of life.  Learners will analyze the roles of individual and global consumption patterns, economic systems, businesses, organizations, and initiatives in achieving a sustainable future.  Learners will also be exposed to metrics and tools that allow them to analyze the consumption choices that they make.


Courses with Sustainability Component*: Sustainably related courses can help students to better understand the social, economic, and environmental extents of sustainability challenges and solutions.  CSI currently doesn’t offer Sustainability courses but it offers courses that have a sustainability component. These courses engage students in making connections between the main topic of the course and how it relates to sustainability.
