Chatham to offer Executive Master degree in sustainability

Over the years, we’ve learned that nothing lasts forever, so we must take care of what we have. In the spirit of this realization, Chatham University’s School of Sustainability and the Environment will begin offering courses for the 16-month Executive Master in Sustainability Leadership starting this fall.

The 30-credit program is designed with working professionals in mind. Applicants may come from a variety of backgrounds, but they must have a strong desire to advance their careers in sustainability or transition into a sustainable field. Classes are primarily offered online, but students will need to make periodic trips to the university’s energy-efficient Eden Hall campus. Coursework is primarily based on a combination of classes within the Master of Sustainability, Master of Business Administration and communications programs. To learn more, email Trish Golla.
