SUST 310 - INTEGRATIVE SEMINAR
In this course, students receive a foundational knowledge of core theory in the domain of Sustainability. Sustainability will be defined within different theoretical frameworks, focusing on the contextual differences, dilemmas, contradictions and gray areas, on the points of debate and dispute within the field, as well as the points of universality and consensus. This seminar will build on the foundational understanding of the issues in the introductory classes, to showcase a systems approach to solving problems of sustainability from within the frame of what has been called "the triple bottom line," in which societal decisions are explicitly embedded within the overlap of the three domains of economy, ethics and ecology, or profit, people and planet. Note that this is not substantially different from the classical and well-established economic construct of "Factors of Production" -- that is to say, Land, Labor, and Capital.
