Mission Statement

The Sustainability & Energy Applications program will prepare students for work, advanced study and citizenship by engaging them in project-based education enhanced by community partnerships and focused on energy sustainability and applications. 


Graduation Requirements

Some courses taken for the major will simultaneously fulfill general education requirements.  Please see the Graduation Requirements (bachelor's degrees) section of this catalog for information on the general education program.

Students should note that the major provides fewer than the required 39 hours of 3000-4000 level coursework, therefore students will need to complete additional 3000-4000 level coursework to meet this requirement.

 

Program Requirements: 48-51 hours

Along with the general education program, students must complete the major's core requirements and select program electives as indicated.

A.  Core Requirements:  42-45 hours

  • Introduction to Cellular Biology (BIOL 1204) -- 4 hours
  • General Chemistry I with Lab (CHEM 1214) -- 4 hours
  • Functions & Algebra (MATH 1013) is a prerequisite for CHEM 1214, ECON 2033 and ECON 2043 unless waiver requirements are met -- 3 hours 
  • Global Energy Issues (SEA 1103) -- 3 hours   
  • Solutions in Sustainability (SEA 1203) -- 3 hours 
  • Introduction to Electrical Energy Systems (SEA 2103) -- 3 hours
  • Alternative Energy Analysis (SEA 2203) -- 3 hours 
  • Research in Bio-energy (SEA 3013) -- 3 hours
  • Building Energy Technology Applications  (SEA 3103) -- 3 hours
  • Environmental Safety & Energy Policy (SEA 3203) -- 3 hours
  • Topics in Sustainability & Energy Applications  (SEA 3303) -- 3 hours

Note:   Students who have taken ECON 2033 or ECON 2043 may not take ECON 2023 for credit.  


Exit Assessment

All Sustainability & Energy Applications majors are required to complete a capstone project as part of SEA 4903.  

 

Recommended Minor

Business Administration, Biology, Chemistry, Christian Ministries, Communication, History, Journalism, and Political Science are good choices for SEA majors.  Courses taken for a minor reduce the number of general electives a student must take.
