Graduate Program

During 2010-12, the sustainability curriculum committee developed a set of graduate courses in Sustainability Practices which will form the core of a Master’s degree.

The new graduate courses in Sustainability Practices include one existing business course. These courses will be offered as electives in the MBA program and in other M.A. programs across campus. Plans are for the core courses to be paired with a discipline-specific track to comprise a Master’s Degree program.

In mid-2009, the Provost established a university sustainability curriculum committee to focus on infusing sustainability concepts into the university curriculum with members appointed by the deans from the colleges.   Additional curriculum offerings in sustainability have been developed since then including a track within the Liberal Studies degree, and a path within General Education.  New graduate courses were approved in Spring 2013.  Ongoing work includes the creation and development of a Master’s degree program.
