Sustainability, Energy, and Environment

The Sustainability, Energy, and Environment Fellows Program (SEE FP) is a campuswide undergraduate minor that prepares students for careers in the corporate sector, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and environmental advocacy groups. Open to students of all majors, this multidisciplinary program teaches a systems-level approach to the ecological, societal, and economic dimensions of sustainability.

Environmental stewardship is one of the greatest challenges facing our nation and world today, and students interested in working on these challenges will need to understand the trade-offs, feedbacks, and barriers of sustainable decision making.

Students are encouraged to apply for the program in the spring semester of their freshman year and start the coursework for the SEE FP in the fall of their sophomore year. More advanced students will of course be considered — and qualifying courses they’ve already completed can be counted toward Minor credit. In total, this minor requires 16-18 credits to be obtained by selecting from a specified list of courses in consultation with an adviser from iSEE.

Applications for enrollment in fall 2017 are due by 11:59pm, Wednesday, March 1. iSEE is hosting an information session ahead of that deadline on Monday, February 13 from 4:15-4:45 p.m. in room 240 of the National Soybean Research Center.
