The Master’s Degree in Sustainability represents an approach to sustainability concepts built around the “Triple Bottom Line,” which comprises the three pillars of sustainability: economy, society, and the environment. Courses in this program include a multi-disciplinary approach to each of these aspects of sustainability. This program asks students to examine the impacts on business and society caused by the changing environment, and to imagine improvements to existing systems in fields including business and management, economic development, public policy and public health, and environmental justice. Graduates in the growing field of Sustainability can find jobs in fields such as clean energy, community organizing, technology, education, management, planning, and business.


The Master’s in Sustainability curriculum provides a challenging and creative learning environment, including courses such as Concepts of Sustainability, Sustainable Business Strategy and Development, Sustainable Energy, Topics in Social Entrepreneurship, Public Health and Sustainability, Systems, Sustainability, and the Built Environment, Sustainable Disaster Management and Development, and Policy Law and Ethics of Sustainability.


The Master’s degree in Sustainability seeks to provide students with a well-rounded view of the various disciplines encompassed by the Triple Bottom Line, and how concepts of sustainability can be implemented into business, public policy, community development, and public health. Graduates will be able to leverage a broad understanding of sustainability concepts to applications in many sectors, and to integrate various approaches in strategy and decision making for the future.
