Real degrees in sustainability don’t have the word “sustainability” scrawled across them in 32 point Old English type. But a fully credentialed graduate of sustainability is easy to spot. They are the ones that are using their choices in electives, minors, co-ops, internships, and research programs to reach outside of their primary degree disciplines. They are the ones leaving Georgia Tech with resumes that sport an abundance of “&’s” such as: BS degrees in Industrial and Systems Engineering & Public Policy; or MS in Mechanical Engineering & Minor in Economics; or PhD in Biology, Thesis: Honeybee Production & the Logistics of Industrial Manufacturing. And after they graduate, they are the ones that are making the greatest positive difference in the lives of people, & the health of the planet, & the wealth of all.
 From the movie “The Graduate” (1967).
