Education for Sustainability through the Humanities

Planning for a sustainability-themed enhancement of four interdisciplinary courses to St. Joseph’s Core Curriculum.

Saint Joseph’s College of Maine will use Humanities Connections planning funds to complete the planning process for the Education for Sustainability Through the Humanities (ESTH) project, which will be a sustainability-themed enhancement to the Core Curriculum. The foundation for ESTH will be development of four interdisciplinary courses as follows: 1) Ethics in Professional Nursing, 2) Justice, Law, Punishment, and Consequences, 3) Dystopian Fiction, and 4) Markets, Development, and Freedom. To support implementation of these courses, we will develop a professional development (PD) plan for delivery of PD opportunities that will guide faculty in exploring best practices in collaborative and interdisciplinary pedagogy focused on the humanities. As a liberal arts college, we emphasize the humanities, especially in our Core Curriculum. We also challenge our students to explore the elements that contribute to sustainable societies, and the proposed ESTH courses will reflect this effort.
