AREA 3: PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS OF SUSTAINABILITY MANAGEMENT COURSES

3 Physical Dimensions of Sustainability Courses (9 credits)       

 

The physical dimensions requirement teaches students about the connections between environmental inputs (i.e. natural resources) and outputs (i.e. energy), and their effects on the natural environment. The emphasis in this requirement will be on understanding the environmental impacts from organizational activities. The planning, design or architecture courses give students a foundation in planning, design and spatial issues. This is particularly important, as many sustainability initiatives concern land use, buildings and other physical entities.
