What will I learn?

UNH is proud to be a national leader in sustainability and we view sustainability as a collective commitment to human dignity for all people and ecological integrity in all places. From our four 3-star Green Restaurant dining halls to our low-carbon campus and diversity, inclusion and equity initiatives, UNH and our Sustainability Dual Major (SDM) will help you develop the critical knowledge, skills and experience to build a better, more sustainable world today and in the future.

The SDM enables you to understand and act on the environmental and social challenges and solutions needed to create a more sustainable world – it's a powerful and unique experience to better understand your chosen field of study through the complex lens of sustainability. By combining your major with broader perspectives, you’ll have the opportunity to explore sustainability challenges such as poverty, inequity, climate change, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace, and racial justice.

Be a part of a vibrant, committed and diverse community that will help you:

Build your UNH community and professional networks
Explore the complexity of sustainability in small, engaging courses
Learn how to collaborate with peers and faculty across majors
Develop career skills needed to create sustainability solutions in any profession
Hone your leadership skills to help create a better world

We are now at a critical juncture in human history during which we will determine the future of planetary and human conditions. Current grand challenges in sustainability include poverty, inequity, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace, and justice as embodied in the UN Sustainable Development Goals. There is growing interest in finding solutions that simultaneously ensure social, economic, and environmental well-being at local to global scales, now and for generations to come. To help address these sustainability challenges, a set of sustainability education goals detailed below have been developed for the University of New Hampshire. These are aspirational for all UNH students and will be pursued through formal and informal educational opportunities. These goals are also inter-related and must be integrated; together they will inspire our students to create and sustain resilient communities at UNH and around the world.
