MCCCD Program Detail
Students must earn a grade of "C" or better for all courses required within the program.
The Academic Certificate (AC) in Sustainability is interdisciplinary and builds a strong academic expertise along one of five significant pillars of sustainability, where students will examine and assess how to minimize unintended consequences and enhance a mutually productive relationship between man and nature. The five pillars are organized into specialized tracks, including land use and human transformations of the earth, competition for water and other natural resources from the earth systems, political and economic treatment of the earth, coupled human-environment interactions, and entrepreneurship for transforming ideas for sustainable products/services into viable businesses.
