About

The Academic Certificate (AC) in Sustainability is interdisciplinary and builds a strong academic expertise along one of four significant pillars of sustainability, where students will examine and assess how to minimize unintended consequences and enhance a mutually productive relationship between man and nature.
 
The four pillars are organized into specialized tracks, including competition for water and other natural resources from the earth systems, political and economic treatment of the earth, coupled human-environment interactions, and entrepreneurship for transforming ideas for sustainable products/services into viable businesses.
 
Students can pick and choose their classes for getting an academic certificate in sustainability in any one of the tracks (please see the certificate program description for more information). 
 
Chandler Gilbert Community College students can also transfer to ASU's School of Sustainability (BA degree program).
