Creighton's College of Arts and Sciences offers quite a few different ways to incorporate sustainability into the curriculum.
Starting in Fall 2011, Creighton will offer a new major in Energy Technology. This major prepares students for cutting-edge fields, but is based on Creighton’s roots in Ignatian pedagogy. In this Ignatian model, drawn from the Spiritual Exercises, teachers accompany learners in the pursuit of competence, conscience, and compassionate commitment. This model stresses personalized programs, active engagement of the student, and reflection on the experience. Both a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Arts will be offered through this innovative program.
Environmental Science is a Bachelor of Science degree program within the Creighton University College of Arts and Sciences. The program provides multidisciplinary science training to prepare students for graduate and professional school studies and for employment in fields of environmental science. This program is offered through the interdepartmental Creighton Institute of Environmental Science (CIES).
