Edgewood College, in Madison, announces its new Master of Arts degree program in Sustainability Leadership, saying that it is the first of its kind in the United States. The program differs from other online courses in that it is a cohort, project-based, learning environment designed for working professionals. Classes begin in July.
Students will gain the skills and knowledge to actualize frameworks for sustainable models, such as ecological design, environmental justice, social innovation and more, empowering graduates to enter a rapidly growing field.
“As those who recognize the urgent call to create abundant, healthy and prosperous communities and companies, it is vital to have the skills to lead change,” observes Jim Lorman, Ph.D. and academic program director of Edgewood College. “By earning a graduate certificate or master of arts degree in Sustainability Leadership, graduates will be equipped with the skills and resources needed to address real-world issues related to their personal and professional goals as they become change agents for sustainability at the local and global levels.”
