Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments

The minor in Environmental Design is a 17-credit cross-school, interdisciplinary minor focused on developing skills related to environmentally sustainable design while developing students’ critical understanding of the social and cultural context of sustainability debates and environmental justice. As an interdisciplinary minor, students are required to take at least one course from the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences and one course from the School of Architecture, with the remaining credits being freely selected from applicable courses. Courses are offered at both the Troy campus as well as CASE in New York City, enabling students to spend a semester at CASE while fulfilling minor requirements.

Students are strongly recommended to use their HASS Core, namely the Sustainability or Environmental Futures pathways towards this minor.
