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 | GEO 150
    Geography 150 is a five-credit Social Science transfer course that also meets the cultural diversity requirement.
