Curriculum: B.S. Sustainability (Double Degree) – Online

This is a unique bachelor's degree program in sustainability that is only available as a double degree to OSU students. This means you will need to have a primary major in another subject area and complete that first before being able to earn your degree in sustainability. At the completion of this program, you will have two bachelor's degrees: one in your primary major and the other in sustainability.

The degree requirements consist of these main areas:

  1. Complete your credits for your primary major (180 credits, which includes the baccalaureate core)
  2. Complete an additional 36 credits as part of the sustainability degree
  3. Program internship 

Course topics within the sustainability degree program include:

  • Sustainable communities
  • Environmental economics and policy
  • Social dimensions of sustainability
  • Sustainability assessment

To view the sustainability major requirements, please visit Oregon State’s official General Catalog

Transfer credits

Some of the degree requirements can be transferred from other colleges and universities. Please note that a minimum of 45 credits must be completed at Oregon State (online or on campus) to meet the academic residency requirement. Previously earned credits will need to be reviewed upon admittance into OSU for appropriate articulation. Additional information about transferring credits is available through the Single Course Search tool provided by OSU's Office of Admissions.

Add a minor
