At Georgia Tech, we believe that the creation of a more prosperous and sustainable society is everyone's responsibility. As such, you will not find a special degree in Sustainability at Georgia Tech, but a curriculum innovation effort that is geared towards educating every student through general studies and through in-depth study in the major degree program. A student who wants to learn about sustainability, therefore, should be enrolled in a major degree program in one of the Colleges. Most of the students who work with us are enrolled in one of the Schools in the College of Engineering. Depending on whether they are undergraduate or graduate students, different options for sustainability-oriented classes and education exist.

Undergraduates

Depending on your major, various classes are offered around sustainability that can count towards your degree. We encourage you to study the Georgia Tech syllabus and catalog to see what (new) course offerings may be available and of interest to you. If you find a course that looks interesting, you may want to contact the professor to see when and how it is going to be offered. Most can also provide you a (tentative) syllabus with more detailed information.

Graduate Students

Many of our graduate students work on a Master’s Thesis and/or Ph.D. Dissertation guided by a faculty advisor. As such, you should talk to your advisor to see what courses would be good for you to take. Many graduate classes involve a project and/or term paper. These can also be focused on a sustainability related topic even though the class may not be per se. Talk to the professor to find out how much flexibility there is in his/her class.
