The University of Maryland’s Climate Action Plan identifies an interest in the establishment of a New Sustainability Graduate Degree and Certificate Programs. The new Master Degree in Sustainability will initially target students in four different schools/colleges with future campus-wide offerings. University of Maryland already offers many courses relevant to the proposed Master Degree in Sustainability. However, the courses are scattered, not regularly offered, and missing interdisciplinary interactions required for a graduate who would be practicing in the field of Sustainability. This project will develop and implement two interdisciplinary courses: Sustainability Methods and the Sustainability Capstone Project.
