Curious? FREE info webinar | MA in Sustainable Design

About the MA Program

It seems everyone is struggling to convert in-person teaching and learning to remote platforms. It’s challenging because in-person courses are designed to be in-person.

We are lucky. Our fully online MA in Sustainable Design program was designed from the start to be a fully online learning experience.

If you are curious about online learning, sustainable design, and what it’s like to be a part of our MA in Sustainable Design program, please join our FREE informational webinar next week. We’ll go through FAQs and what it takes to apply, before opening up to your questions.

In the meantime, we encourage you to learn more about us by exploring our blog posts; faculty, student, and alumni profiles; and all of our past thesis project presentations.

We look forward to meeting you online soon!
