TODAY: How might you make change?

About the MA Program

If you’re reading this blog, you’re almost certainly among the many people who are looking beyond the pandemic and know that things have to change. And maybe you’re among the few who have decided to do something to help make change.

But what change? And how might you make change?

These are very big and very important questions that very few are equipped to answer. That is why we created our MA in Sustainable Design program. So you can understand the history and multiple facets of sustainability. So you can understand and apply systems thinking and sustainable design frameworks. So you can consider the business of sustainable design. So you can apply what you are learning with projects and collaborations, and to effectively present and communicate what emerges. So you can ask nature how to create change. So you can lead yourself and others into this changing world.

So you can change your perspectives, change your designs, and change our world.

If you’re curious if our fully online MA in Sustainable Design program might be how you equip and empower yourself to make change, we invite you to join our free informational webinar TODAY at 1:00pmCT!

You are also welcome to contact me to set up a time to talk about you, your goals, and if our program is a good fit for you.
