Get Started: B.S. in Sustainability (Double Degree) – Online

The online bachelor's program in sustainability at Oregon State University is only available as a double degree. This means you must be pursuing a primary major in a different subject at OSU in order to add this degree to your studies. Once you have completed the requirements for your primary degree and the additional course work for the sustainability degree, you will earn two bachelor's degrees from Oregon State.

Getting started in the program depends on who you are

Are you a current OSU undergraduate student?

Your first step is to contact your primary major advisor to let him or her know you would like to pursue this additional degree. Or, contact Ann Scheerer, academic advisor for the sustainability double degree program, at

Not a current OSU student?

Because the sustainability double degree is only available to current OSU students, you'll need to apply for admissions to Oregon State University and select your primary major in a subject other than sustainability. Learn more about getting ready to apply to Oregon State.

Once you are admitted to Oregon State and are pursuing your primary degree (e.g. economics, psychology, fisheries and wildlife sciences), you can then add sustainability to your studies by contacting your primary major advisor, who will walk you through the process.
