The special concentration is intentionally more flexible than the major, given that students have their major classes as well. However, its structure allows students to benefit from the program’s cross-disciplinary courses and to build the expertise that will allow them to address the fundamental issue of how to move toward a trajectory of sustainability.
A minimum of nine courses and a practicum are required for the special concentration. Students will take courses within the following framework:
I. SDEV Foundation
II. Natural Science Systems
III. Human Science Systems
IV. Analysis and Solutions to Complex Problems
A letter grade of C- or better is needed in all program related courses in order to satisfy the requirements for the special concentration. P/F grades are only permitted in SDEV 3998 and INAF 4420.
