Applied Sustainability

Major, Minor

Immerse yourself in an interdisciplinary program with an emphasis on designing solutions to environmental problems.

Students combine the fundamentals of ecology and permaculture with social sciences and humanities as they seek solutions to complex global challenges.

We emphasize hands-on learning. Students study and practice ecological design at permaculture sites near campus, including Pacific University’s own B Street Farm, a learning lab for food production and permaculture.
