Learn about the new and improved MA in Sustainable Design program at MCAD.

Join Cindy Gilbert, director of MCAD’s Sustainable Design Program, for a 1-hr informational webinar about the fully online Master of Arts in Sustainable Design degree offered by MCAD. We’ve been listening to our students and alumni, and are excited about the big changes we made to the program that reflect their candid feedback.

We’ve moved to a 5-semester, 30-credit per year program (no classes during summer!). Learn more at the webinar next week.

Next webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, September 13 @7pm CT.

I promise to field all questions at that time. Just try to stump me! Note: early decision application deadline in October 1.

She is founder of Alula Consulting which specializes in innovative online and sustainability education projects for educational institutions, non-profits, and corporations.
