Academics

University of Richmond is committed to integrating sustainability into our students’ educational experience. Since signing the Climate Action Plan in 2010, the University has offered sustainability courses in 23 departments representing all five schools, with sustainability content ranging from entry-level courses to advanced capstone seminars. You can browse a complete list of sustainability associated courses here.

In addition to standalone courses, the University of Richmond offers undergraduate degrees in Environmental Studies and Geography and the Environment, both of which have learning outcomes related to climate change and sustainability. Post-baccalaureate students also have the opportunity to learn about sustainability in their formal education at the School of Law and School of Professional and Continuing Studies.

Take some time to look through courses, research opportunities, and study abroad options. Whatever your field of study, sustainability can play a role in your education.
