The Master of Science program in Environmental Sustainability has three objectives. One objective is to provide students with a cross-disciplinary understanding of the theory and practice of sustainability. A second objective is to educate and equip students with the analytical and policy skill set to help organizations, businesses, institutions, and communities to understand, adapt, and implement sustainability strategies. The program is also designed to produce graduates whose expertise will drive the next phase of intellectual, organizational, and societal thinking on environmental sustainability.

The M.S. program in Environmental Sustainability includes a thesis option and a non-thesis option. Both programs require the completion of five courses with a grade of B or better in each course. The specific course requirements are GEOG 5433 (Environmental Sustainability—Theory and Practice), GEOG 5243 (Systems Thinking and Knowledge Integration), GEOG 5253 (Economics of Sustainability), GEOG 5333 (Corporate Environmental Strategy), and GEOG 5543 (Life Cycle Analysis).
