Environment and Sustainability Courses


Augsburg College’s location in the city offers a particular opportunity for the close study of complex urban environments. Although many equate environmental issues with rural areas, most people live in cities. Urban residents shape nature in innumerable ways, including through energy, food, and water consumption, transportation, and industrial production. In turn, cities often serve as the settings in which environmental injustice flourishes.

With that in mind, a variety of courses across the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences foster the study of environmental quality, social justice, and economic sustainability.

Students can also pursue a major or minor in Environmental Studies.
