Sustainability highlights within our undergraduate curriculum

The University of Sussex is passionate about sustainability with a strong track record of providing quality education in this area.

Our Sustainability Strategy: Sustainable Sussex contains a specific commitment to ensuring that sustainability is taught in all degrees, meaning we will review and increase the sustainability content in all of our schools between now and 2023, to make sure we are supporting our students to develop the knowledge and skills they need to go out and create a better world after their time here.

We are excited to use this review process to build on an already strong foundation of providing sustainability content within our degrees. These pages set out some of the key highlights in our existing curriculum that support the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

On these pages we outline how sustainability is incorporated into the undergraduate curriculum of each of our schools, and highlight modules and degree courses that especially interact with the SDGs.

We also highlight undergraduate degree courses that are specifically relevant to each SDG.
