Most undergraduate courses and some graduate level courses listed as sustainability related fulfill the requirements for the minor. Students must take at least one course from each of the three tracks: earth/environment systems; society and sustainability; and policy, organization and leadership. The courses which fulfill these tracks can be found in the Sustainability Minor guide or by using the course attributes for Sustainability Minor Tracks A, B, and C which are SMTA, SMTB, and SMTC respectively in course search.

Students must also take the introductory course, SUST 1001. In their junior or senior year, students must complete a culminating experience, SUST 3097.
