Sustainability students on the rise

The Chronicle lists Sustainability in the Top 5 rising majors. It is really a loose grouping of majors, but clearly an emerging growth area for schools. They cite a recent pilot project from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education that identified more than 70 schools with sustainability-related majors (including Rutgers). But whatever you think it is about, you are probably only partly right since some seem to be teaching it as a research scienc while others are emphasizing it as training for a first job.
