Total Credits: 17-18

Environmental Forum (offered through a COF school in the spring) 2 credits: this course must be taken twice to fulfill the minor requirements
Sustainable Projects (offered through Massart in the spring 2018) 3 credits is being considered as an alternative to the second requirements for the Environmental Forum.  If you are interested in this option, email Jane D. Marsching

Electives (can be in any department) 13-14 credits
We recommend that you take studio and liberal arts/art history electives as sustainable visions and solutions need to include thinking and making. We also recommend you take a science course to ground you in some of the central concerns of sustainable science today.

Courses that count for the minor can also be counted towards your major or Massart credit requirements.


Massart courses are tagged in Davinci with a content tag: Sustainability Content.
If you are find or are taking a course that you think has significant sustainability content and is not tagged in Davinci with the Sustainability Content tag, please notify the Minor Directors.


You need to register for the minor.  You can get the form here or at the Registrars office.  You need a signature from one of the Minor Directors as well as your Department Chair.


Program Evaluation:
Once you register, the Minor will appear at the end of your Program Evaluation on Davinci.  There you can see how many courses you need to take and which you have taken.


Prior years:
If you have taken course in prior years at MassArt that you want to apply to the minor credit requirements, you can do that in consultation with the Minor Directors or Jesseca Petriello in ARC (
