The MA program in Natural Resources and Sustainable Development is a dual-degree program. Students study at American University, where they earn an MA in International Affairs, and the United Nations-affiliated University for Peace in Costa Rica, where they earn an MA in Natural Resources and Sustainable Development. It is the first graduate degree program in which students can learn about environmental and development policies from the perspectives of both the South and North. American University, in Washington, D. C., is uniquely situated to do this through its strengths in international relations, environmental policy, and economics, while The University for Peace, in San Jose, Costa Rica, provides unparalleled opportunities to offer courses and practical experience in sustainable development and natural resources management.
