Make a difference with Sustainable Communities
Our intertwined social and ecological communities require strong visions of justice and sustainability in response to today’s, and tomorrow’s, complex challenges. Students in the Sustainable Communities program dig into the root causes of these challenges through deep study, praxis, and hands-on opportunities for community leadership and transformation. This program cultivates dynamic, well-rounded leaders in sustainability, civic engagement, interdisciplinary research, and social justice.
- Graduate students can earn a Master of Arts degree in Sustainable Communities, typically in two years.
- We also offer an undergraduate minor in Civic Engagement.
