We are involved in developing courses that stress sustainability issues that are integral to the geosciences including climate change, energy, water, and natural hazards. Penn State Geosciences is a member of the NSF-GEO-STEP InTeGrate Center. We are in the process of developing blended and on-line courses that integrate geosciences and sustainability themes at the general education level. For more information on InTeGrate, please go to:
The on-line and blended courses developed through the InTeGrate program will be the basis of two fully online programs: (1) a new Certificate of Excellence in Earth Science program, and (2) a minor in Earth Sustainability. These programs are aimed specifically at non-traditional students will be offered through the Penn State World Campus. Stay tuned for more details.
