2014 cohort 

The M.A. Sustainability Program (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
  • Linking theory and practice
  • Issue-based
  • Learner-based
  • Working with community
  • Flexible pedagogy

It’s a small world, after all…
