Sustainability is often defined as “the three E’s,” that is Equality, Economy and the Environment. The courses I am recommending are an attempt to touch on these concepts. They are broad and general because the study of sustainability is vast. Sustainability covers many aspects of our technological and scientific bodies of knowledge as well as discourse of the concepts involved in many different and seemingly unrelated areas of study.
ENGL 102C Introduction to Literature — This course is recommended to instill the discipline of reading and writing on varied subjects.
SOC 101C Introduction to Sociology — I chose this course because of how some of the problems faced in incorporating sustainability concepts can have great sociological implications.
ENGR 102C Introduction to Engineering — This course is important because many of the technological approaches to sustainability and high performance building are based in science, technology, and innovation.
