Individuals looking to pad their resume and pursue careers where they can provide meaningful change may be interested in a master’s degree. With its selective focus, a master’s degree offers the opportunity to demonstrate academic prowess and expertise in a specific field.

Those interested in pursuing careers that offer both social and meaningful change may want to pursue a graduate degree in sustainability. What is a Master in Sustainability Studies? Masters programs in sustainability studies are broad but typically focus on the environment and social responsibility. With course topics like social responsibility, climate change, and poverty and development, students in this program come away with a deep responsibility of the world we live in.

As sustainability studies focus on the understanding and caring of our world, it should not be surprising that skills developed in this program benefit students beyond their professional lives. For instance, focusing on social and economic issues, scholars of sustainability studies learn effective communication and conflict-resolution skills, and they learn how to work in a group.

Typically, a Master in Sustainability Studies takes anywhere from a year and a half to two years to complete. The costs associated with a program like this vary by location and school and should be researched thoroughly.

Those who successfully graduate with a Master in Sustainability Studies can expect a wide array of career opportunities. These careers can range from business endeavors to environmental ones. Several career choices are business risk manager, environmental scientist, environmental engineer, project manager, sustainability consultant, and agricultural environmental specialist. While a degree in this field is helpful for achieving success in any of these career fields, that success is also dependent on experience.

Anyone seeking information on a Master in Sustainability Studies would benefit from reviewing several universities’ requirements, cost, and expectations. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
