Student Involvement: Sustainability Classes

UC Davis courses related to sustainability

The courses below were identified as either (1) sustainability courses or (2) courses that include sustainability, during a comprehensive inventorying of all UC Davis courses offered from 2010-2013. The inventory was conducted for the higher education sustainability reporting tool, Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS). This list was originally created in December 2009 and published in the Climate Action Plan as Appendix 4. The list was last updated on May 22, 2014.

In winter 2016, Davis faculty identified courses that cover climate science and climate change action. The list is provided in Microsoft Excel format and faculty plan to update the list annually.

Other courses at UC Davis may also touch upon sustainability topics. Check with the appropriate department or faculty member. These classes have been taught the last 3-4 years and may not be offered every year. Some courses have prerequisites or restricted enrollment. Please check the course catalog for class schedules and offerings. Please send additions or corrections to sustainability@ucdavis.edu.
