Sustainability-related courses

Wenatchee Valley College has a dedicated course focused on sustainability that is offered in Spring and Summer every year:

  • Introduction to Sustainability | GEOG 150
    Geography 150 is a five-credit Social Science transfer course that also meets the cultural diversity requirement. It is offered face-to-face or as an online course and both include a service learning component so students can practice sustainability in their own lives. Contact instructor Joan Qazi at
