B.S. in Sustainability (Double Degree) – Online

Find solutions to pressing global issues

Sustainability impacts all aspects of global business, politics, economics and society, creating a need for leaders who have the skills and knowledge to address issues such as climate change, reliance on traditional energy sources, water issues and the demand for socially and environmentally responsible products and services.

Oregon State University is recognized worldwide as a premier sustainability and natural resources university, and now OSU students can earn their Bachelor of Science (B.S.) online in this demanding and popular area of study.

Only available as a double degree

The B.S. in Sustainability is only available as a double degree online through Oregon State Ecampus. Current OSU students can complete this degree program as an addition to their primary degree program. The degree is designed to complement all OSU degree programs.

Courses within this degree program are offered by various OSU colleges, whose faculty are involved in basic and applied research around the world that promote sustainability. The rigorous and high-quality degree is delivered online through Oregon State Ecampus.
