Education and Learning
Ohio State invests in a resilient future by educating tomorrow’s leaders. The Ohio State University emphasizes sustainable education by making students more aware of how sustainability and resilience issues affect their day-to-day lives and how they can influence change. Ohio State’s undergraduate and graduate study programs in sustainability issues support our commitment to develop a workforce capable of implementing new solutions to our global challenges.
At the Sustainability Institute, we work in collaboration with units across the university to enhance curricular programs and opportunities, experiential learning and co-curricular experiences for students. Ohio State’s commitment to sustainability begins in the classroom, where we offer 74 undergraduate majors and minors and a variety of master’s and doctoral graduate programs that identify one or more sustainability-related learning outcomes; 450 sustainability courses; and more than 650 additional courses that feature sustainability topics. Outside of the classroom, Ohio State students engage in a number of project-based learning opportunities, internships, co-ops, student organizations and living-learning programs focused on sustainability.
