Messiah College’s sustainability studies major can trace its roots to Francis Eane’s, a 2009 graduate who formulated this major through his senior honors project. The major was first offered in the fall of 2010 and replaced the Environmental Studies major. It is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The curriculum is designed around a set of core courses and the choice of one of three concentrations in community & urban development (CUD), sustainable public policy (PP), or sustainable agriculture (AG); and a practicum or internship experience.
