Sustainability Courses

Below is a searchable, filterable list of undergraduate and graduate classes offered at UC Berkeley that center sustainability or include sustainability content. Here is a short tutorial on how to navigate these resources.

Please help us keep this database current by submitting sustainability-related courses you have taken since 2018 that are not included yet! This list contains courses from the 2017-18 school year, so if you find a course you like, be sure to look it up on classes.berkeley.edu  to see if it is still offered.

The course list is linked to the list of course reviews, so you can filter by average overall rating here. If you want to look through the individual reviews for certain classes, scroll down to the reviews table.
