Colleges are rapidly adding new majors and minors in green studies, and students are filling them fast, USA Today reports. Nationwide, more than 100 majors, minors or certificates were created this year in energy and sustainability-focused programs at colleges big and small, says the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education. That’s up from just three programs added in 2005. Two factors are driving the surge: Students want the courses, and employers want the trained students, says Paul Rowland, the association’s executive director.
