2014 cohort 

The M.A. program in Sustainable Communities (SUS) at NAU integrates many areas of study, including anthropology, the arts, business, humanities, economics, education, environmental science, history, literature, philosophy, political science, psychology, religion, sociology, women's studies, technology, and the performing and studio arts. Students gain both depth and breadth in understanding issues important to sustaining community life by choosing from among our own courses and those from across the university. This is a 36-credit-hour, thesis-based program that encourages you to pursue social and environmental sustainability issues.

Our guiding principles are:

  • Inter-disciplinary inquiry
  • Linking theory and practice
  • Issue-based research
  • Learner-based curriculum
  • Working with community
  • Flexible pedagogy

It’s a small world, after all…
