Typical Course of Study for the Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Urban Environments


 Note: A typical SUE semester is split between two technology/science courses and two humanities/social sciences courses. The flexibility of a SUE major allows many variations, some with heavier technology/science concentrations than others. Each SUE student customizes his or her curriculum in consultation with the program’s academic adviser. What follows is one way to fulfill the degree requirements, and this particular plan concentrates electives in the second semester of the third year so that a student can study abroad in one of New York University’s global university campuses.
