Courses

The Institute for Environmental Science & Policy, and the Sustainability Strategic Thinking process, is currently undergoing a survey of all UIC departments to identify courses that relate to or directly focus on sustainability issues. Check our the Institute for Environmental Science & Policy for more information on courses that incorporate sustainability. If there is an area of particular interest to you, we recommend you contact the appropriate Faculty member.

In addition, every summer the Energy Initiative offers a two-week intensive workshop called the Summer Institute on Sustainability and Energy (SISE) that focuses on current topics in energy, sustainable energy, and sustainability. Participants converge at the University of Illinois at Chicago where they live and work together in a tight-knit, diverse community of energy-minded students and professionals. The SISE experience affords participants time and resources to explore pressing energy topics in an immersive environment. These future energy leaders are educated to make decisions about energy at the personal, civic, and global levels, in energy related fields including science, technology, entrepreneurship, economics, policy, planning, and behavior.

We have listed courses offered at UIC that relate to sustainability, as well as study abroad opportunities.
