The 24-month online MS in Sustainable Design program offers many of the same courses and programs as the on campus-based program but with the convenience and flexibility of online course work. Students take two unique graduate certificates and complete their capstone to achieve the master’s degree. The “premium” course delivery methods guarantee that students will have ample opportunities for live interactions with the professors and students in the program.*

Scholarships are available.

Premium Online Delivery: All of our courses feature live lectures and discussions delivered in real time using video conferencing software. All live lectures and discussions are recorded so that students who have other commitments can still complete the class. This option provides a lot of flexibility for students, especially those with demanding jobs or multiple commitments.

Students “design” their own curriculum by pairing two unique concentrations followed by the MSSD Capstone Course.
