New Degree Program in Sustainability

Starting Summer 2017, students will have the exciting new opportunity to pursue a B.A. with a concentration in sustainability.

UofL has a long-standing commitment to sustainability, exemplified by the formation of the Sustainability Council in 2008. UofL was the first school in Kentucky to achieve a Gold rating according the the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS), continues to hold the highest STARS rating in Kentucky. 

Students at UofL have previously had the opportunity to take sustainability courses, and a graduate degree program was made available last year.  Increasing student demand, as well as initiatives by faculty and staff, has helped propel the launch of the B.A. in sustainability. 

The program will offer an interdisciplinary approach to understanding sustainability, and students will learn from a wide variety of faculty expertise.  The program will be linked with the Sustainability Scholars and researches, the Kentucky Institute for the Environment and Sustainable Development (KIESD), the Partnership for a Green City, the Kentucky Pollution Prevention Control Center and Louisville Sustainability Council. Graduates of the new degree program will be well prepared to work in both the private and public sector.
