Sustainability Science

You don’t have to choose between profit and the planet. Our Sustainability Science degree is designed to help you understand and advance both.

Your studies will dive deep into the science of environmental systems, while keeping a keen perspective on related business issues.

You’ll learn how economics, policy, development and other factors can be shaped to reduce environmental risks. As the green economy grows, scientists who can articulate the business impacts and benefits of sustainability will be increasingly in-demand.

Every Sustainability Science major must complement their program with foundational business studies, leading either toward a minor or a second major in Business Studies. This ensures you leave Bentley with broad business skills, in addition to expertise in sustainability.
