Environmental Related Courses

The real evidence of student learning is in the projects on which the students work in their classes and outside the class.

Carnegie Mellon teaches numerous environmental courses each semester. Some courses, often with pre-requisites, help build expertise in the field of environmental engineering, science, architecture or policy. Many other courses help build environmental literacy, some incorporating environmental content into courses focusing on topics such as writing, history or art and others focusing on specific facets of environment and sustainability. Courses that count towards any of the environmental majors or minors should be confirmed with the respective advisor. Please note that the following course list is offered as a resource and does not claim to be complete or definitive.
