Elizabeth City State University to Launch New Bachelor’s Degree Program in Sustainability Studies

Elizabeth City State University, a historically Black educational institution in North Carolina, has announced that it will launch a new bachelor’s of science degree program in sustainability studies. The new program will be available in the fall 2020 semester. The degree program will provide students with broad interdisciplinary knowledge and skills that are required to address the inherent collaboration between environmental, human, and technological systems that affect sustainability-related problems in the world today.

The curriculum will consist mostly of courses in biology, chemistry, ecology, physics, entrepreneurship, communications, technology, health, and psychology that already exist at the university. Only four new courses will be developed for the new degree.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, green-job careers are expanding into a number of areas including solar and wind energy, green marketing, environmental sciences, agriculture, environmental law, and more. The goal of the new program is to prepare students to pursue successful careers in the emerging green-job market.
