Sustainability Studies Courses Expanded Because of Demand (But Spaces Are Going Fast)

Due to demand, we have decided in increase the sizes of two of our fall courses from 25 to 30 students.  While the first-ever online offering of SUST 310 Energy and Climate Change taught by Carla Jones and the online section of the SUST 210 Sustainable Future introductory seminar taught by Professor Zimring are both full, we have added five spaces to the downtown section of SUST 210 taught Tuesday evenings by Michele Hoffman-Trotter.

We have also added five spaces to the Thursday evening downtown offering of SUST 230 Food, taught by Carolyn Persoon.  Both of these classes had already started waitlists, and it is likely spaces will fill quickly.

We also have spaces left in two of our seminars.  Professor Mike Bryson offers SUST 220 Water as a hybrid course meeting on four Saturdays in Schaumburg (and weekly online).  See this post about water issues for a preview of how the course is organized.  Back downtown, Professor Julian Kerbis Peterhans offers a section of SUST 330 Biodiversity Friday mornings. SUST 330 will once again meet at the Field Museum of Natural History, where students will get hands-on experience helping staff label and classify specimens.
