Most university courses focus on a particular discipline, but in fact all disciplines overlap or are influenced by others. The new Science 220 course challenges students to consider interdisciplinary perspectives - from science and engineering, to economics and business, and the social sciences - in analyzing and proposing solutions to complex problems.
In 2013, the Faculty of Science became the first faculty to initiate the development of a Sustainability Learning Pathway for their undergraduate students. A Sustainability Learning Pathway is a collection of sustainability-oriented courses and experiences that students pursue alongside their disciplinary major. Pathways may be integrated within existing programs, or offered as a separate entity such as a minor.
Faculty of Science’s module includes 5 key components:
- Introductory course (Science 220)
- Suite of electives
- Real world experience
- Capstone course
- Sustainability learning community
The pathway equips students with the four sustainability attributes.
