Environment, Economy, Development, and Sustainability Minor

The Environment, Economy, Development, and Sustainability (EEDS) minor offers students a multi-disciplinary program that focuses on the human, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability – often referred to as people, planet and profit.

Through enrollment in the EEDS minor, students learn sustainability concepts to complement their work in their major program of study. The EEDS minor curriculum is comprised of core courses from the EEDS major and includes a range of courses that can be selected by students to count towards the minor degree. These courses are designed to provide a foundation in sustainability concepts and theory related to economics, business, sociology, and community and international development. A total of 15 semester hours are required for the minor.

EEDS is a joint program between Ohio State’s School of Environment and Natural Resources (SENR) and the Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics (AEDE). Students enrolled in the minor take classes with faculty working in both areas.
