Eco: Sustainability Studio
While sustainability is a theme throughout every course in the program, this studio focuses exclusively on developing solutions that directly affect financial, natural, and human capital, as well as the systems that govern them. The course takes an in-depth look at various frameworks and approaches to sustainable development, using both historical and contemporary examples. Throughout the semester, students use practical tools and techniques for identifying issues, developing solutions, troubleshooting problems, and measuring progress. A semesterlong project challenges students to apply sustainability skills to a refined solution; at the end of the semester, they present their results along with a sustainability analysis and implementation plan.
