Using the Earth Charter, we identified 30 search terms for each of the spheres of sustainability (economic, social, environmental) for a total of 90 search terms. We queried the UW course catalogue using these search terms. Original result produced over 8,000 courses. 700 were excluded for being non-related to sustainability, approximately 3,500 were identified as duplicates resulting from courses identified by multiple search terms. This left approximately 4,800 courses. These courses were then reviewed and identified as either sustainability-focused or sustainability-related. Courses such as "Topics in...", "Survey on...", "Special Topics", capstones, research, etc. were identified as sustainability-related.
Courses with multiple sections/times were counted as a single course. Some courses are cross-listed in multiple departments; these are counted as a separate course.
