Ecological Cities (Pathways Minor)

College of Natural Resources and Environment

In little more than a decade, global urban land area is expected to triple, creating a host of complex sustainability challenges. The way we design, create, and manage cities and other urbanized areas will have a significant impact on our future quality of life and the global environment. Professionals are now faced with a new and complex challenge: integrating the natural world into the built environment for the benefit of society.

Students completing the Ecological Cities Minor will be better prepared to critically analyze sustainable design and practice in cities and its scientific and cultural underpinnings.
