Hood College announces a new Bachelor of Arts degree in Sustainability Studies. The new major is designed to integrate the liberal arts with technology, to explore the values and the cultivation of community, and to equip students for lives of responsibility, service, civic engagement and leadership. Hood’s program is uniquely grounded in the water-energy-food nexus. All three focus areas feature systems thinking, high impact practices, content knowledge, field and laboratory mentorship, College-wide sustainability initiatives, and civic engagement and service learning. This program offers a holistic education that encompasses the curriculum, co-curricular experiences, and a rich array of experiential learning opportunities that will facilitate student exploration and foster intellectual growth.

The college is currently accepting students for the program with classes set to begin in the spring of 2021. For more information, visit https://www.hood.edu/
