Course List

Whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student, a course in sustainability is a great way to broaden your Penn State education. With a greater understanding of the complex concepts related to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, including climate action, eliminating hunger and poverty, peaceful and just institutions, and innovation and infrastructure, students can expand their knowledge and gain a fresh perspective on their primary area(s) of work. If you don’t find a class that fits with your degree or schedule here, the Sustainability Institute has compiled an intercollege list of sustainability-related courses you can browse as well.
