Humber teaches sustainability across many of its academic programs. As we move into the 21st century, more of Humber's curricula and programs will focus on sustainability. Sustainability is a means to teach future generations how to resolve the social, economic and environmental issues that impact the world today, and in the future. By teaching tomorrow’s leaders these concepts we can truly change the world.

Courses

Humber offers over 300 courses that address one or more of the Environmental, Social and Economic aspects of sustainability. See a complete list of Sustainability Related and Sustainability Focused courses.

  • Sustainability Related courses fall within one or more of the three pillars (Environment, Society, and Economy) and either incorporate sustainability as a distinct course component or module, or concentrate on a sustainability principle or issue. 
  • Sustainability Focused courses either concentrate on the concept of sustainability, including its environmental, social and economic dimensions (or examine an issue or topic using sustainability as a lens).
