The SUST program is offering a full slate of courses for the Spring 2014 semester at the Chicago and Schaumburg Campuses as well as online. Most sections have several seats available, though some are filling quickly after the start of registration this past Nov. 1st!
At the Chicago Campus, we are offering a daytime section of SUST 210 The Sustainable Future (Mon 9:30am-12pm), a Tues afternoon section of SUST 240 Waste, and two upper-level courses: SUST 340 Policy, Law, & Ethics (Wed 6-8:30pm) and a new offering of 390 Special Topics: Sustainability in Film and Literature (Thur 11am-1:30pm, starts week of Jan. 10th). This latter selection is a new course cross-listed with ENG 341, and is taught by legendary Roosevelt professor Dr. Gary Wolfe, one of the world’s foremost authorities on science fiction and fantasy literature (and knowledgeable about just about everything else in the arts and humanities).
At the Schaumburg Campus, we’re offering a Tues evening section of the always-popular SUST 230 Food course as well as a five-Saturday/online hybrid section of SUST 330 Biodiversity course, which involves several field trips was well-received in its first incarnation last spring. Specific dates for the five Saturday sessions in SUST 330 will be announced soon.
Last but not least are several online offerings, which are always in high demand: the aforementioned SUST 210 The Sustainable Future; the first fully-online section of SUST 220 Water since Fall 2010; SUST 310 Energy & Climate Change; and SUST 320 Sprawl, Transportation, & Planning.
Advising and registration are still underway for the Spring 2013 semester. Current RU students should contact their advisor to discuss spring (and summer) course selections and sign up for classes while they are still available. This page from the RU Registrar provides a wealth of links and useful info.
