Green to Gold

Join the global green revolution that seeks to balance the needs of people, planet, and profits

Embark on an exciting adventure with your classmates to create a more sustainable future and gain career development opportunities along the way. 

The North Coast of California, where only 5% of the magnificent redwoods remain, provides a unique learning environment. Today, the climate crisis cannot be ignored and “business as usual” is no longer viable.

This program is for students majoring in Business Administration.

At Humboldt, we learn in and from the environment around us.
