In the Classroom
Certificates and Courses
Syracuse University's L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science (LCS) partners with the SEP to develop and deliver curricula on sustainable enterprise. Our approach integrates business, science, engineering, policy, and practice, and emphasizes transdisciplinary faculty and student collaboration.
Students from SUNY-ESF and a number of SU's schools and colleges, including the Whitman School, LCS, the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, the College of Arts & Sciences, and the School of Architecture are enrolled in our courses.
Certificate of Advanced Study in Sustainable Enterprise (CASSE)
Businesses and other organizations are keenly aware of the significant risks and potential benefits associated with environmental and social challenges. Thus, there is great demand for professionals who are skilled in sustainability issues and understand the economic, environmental, technical, and social dilemmas presented by phenomena such as climate change, volatile energy prices, and explosive growth in developing economies. The Certificate of Advanced Study in Sustainable Enterprise (CASSE) was developed to meet this need.
Admission to the program is available to all matriculated graduate students at Syracuse Universityand SUNY-ESF. CASSE candidates are required to complete three core courses and two electives. The core courses, described below, are designed to be relevant and accessible to a wide range of disciplines. Students articulate a rationale to support the selection of electives.
