Sustainability Science

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.

As a Sustainability Science major, you will graduate with a broad knowledge of business by completing courses that are part of the Business Administration minor. You will also have the option of complementing your Sustainability Science major with a Business Administration major, or any other approved Bentley major, by using some of your free electives to take additional courses.

Finding more than just business at Bentley

As a high school junior, Sydney MacLeod ’18 was like most of her peers: She didn’t know exactly what she wanted to study in college, and admits that she wasn’t 100 percent confident about business. Then she visited Bentley, talked to people, and noticed what the students and professors here were doing. And she found out that Bentley was much more than business.
