FAQ: Master of Arts in Sustainability

Q.  I’ve heard Wake Forest offers a Masters in Sustainability. Is this true?

A. Yes. The Center for Energy, Environment and Sustainability (CEES) at Wake Forest offers a Master of Arts in Sustainability. The program offers a four-course core – global human systems; sustainable organizational management; resource management and energy science; and environment law and policy – as well as an applied sustainability course and a capstone research project or extended practicum. The 30-credit MA in Sustainability is one of a select few across the nation.

In addition to the MA in Sustainability, CEES offers a Graduate Certificate Program in Sustainability. The 12-credit certificate includes all core courses from the master’s program. Although the certification can stand alone, providing substantive knowledge of sustainability-related issues, it can also be earned in conjunction with another Wake Forest master’s degree program.
