The Master's in Sustainable Solutions (MSUS) is designed to prepare students to apply sustainability principles and approaches to careers in a variety of fields, addressing complex human and environmental challenges. Students with an MSUS will have the knowledge base and skill sets to bring sustainability solutions to corporate, government, and NGO sectors. Beginning with a foundation in sustainability theory and methods, the program allows students to specialize in one of five tracks:
Policy and Administration
Technology and Society
A distinguishing element of the MSUS (vs. the MA or MS) program is the capstone experience, in which students will do an internship, applied project or workshop (in lieu of a thesis) that emphasizes the application of sustainability principles and approaches to their chosen career field. Students will be teaming up with a company, a government agency, or an NGO to develop a real-world sustainability solution. This practical experience will position MSUS graduates perfectly in today's competitive, knowledge-intensive job market.
Established in 2006, the School of Sustainability’s mission is to educate a new generation of scholars and practitioners and create innovative modes of scholarship by bringing together leaders, stakeholders, and people from multiple disciplines to develop practical solutions to the most pressing sustainability challenges.
