Sustainability and "going green" are hot topics in current events and affect many aspects of our lives. Why not take your interest in the environment and earn a graduate degree in this important field? The demand for sustainability jobs is ever increasing. Topics in this field include environmental education; sustainability and urban planning; environmental or sustainability management; and sustainability in industry, finance, engineering, and public policy.

A graduate sustainability program can create more career opportunities for you and help put you at the forefront of this growing global industry. Even though sustainability is a relatively new field, earning a green degree from top and nationally ranked colleges and universities across the country is within your reach. Whether you want to focus on renewable energy, sustainable business practices, sustainable design, or planning sustainable communities, make sure that the graduate program you choose meets your individual education needs.

You'll want to consider the range of courses available and whether or not the specific focuses of the program match your interest. Cost, location, and degree type may also influence your decision. Another factor you might want to investigate is the availability of benefits outside of the classroom, such as internships, research, and the chance for practical, hands-on training.
