The Sustainability Minor culminates in a practical experience focused on service learning, research learning, or internship learning in sustainability. Engagement in community service, research, or other relevant work on sustainability offers you opportunities to integrate as well as synthesize sustainability theories and principles learned from prior coursework toward advancing sustainability across society. Students work closely with their capstone adviser(s) to develop meaningful projects that draw on the students' academic background.
At the end of their project, students produce a report and a poster detailing the project and relating it to sustainability concepts. Student posters are displayed each year in the Arkansas Union during Earth Week (the week of April 22). Past capstone posters are also displayed on this page below.
Visit the list of courses for the minor for the course description and prerequisites. Students are encouraged to begin discussing their capstone with Professor Marty Matlock at any point in their minor. This document provides additional guidance and considerations in preparation for a capstone project. Students must complete and return the last page of the document to Sustainability House in order to enroll in SUST 4103 in the Spring.
