Two interdisciplinary minors, in Sustainability and in Energy Studies, will be offered to all undergraduate students beginning in the fall of 2011. “The only way that we can confront some of the most difficult challenges facing humanity today is with an interdisciplinary perspective,” said Jessica Hellmann, Associate Professor of Biology and chair of the committee that developed the Sustainability Minor. “One of the really compelling things about the Sustainability Minor is that its gateway course will be taught by several faculty from different fields who will debate and share complex ideas with students in the classroom.”
