The Urban Sustainability Department at Antioch University
Why you should consider this program
We are training the next generation of urban problem-solvers to meet the world’s dual challenges of climate change and inequality. If you dream about changing the system, our 32-semester credit, 18- month program offers an educational home of like-minded students, faculty, and community partners who work and learn together in a hybrid, hands-on, cutting edge program. Our urban centers can be just and sustainable places with effective educators, advocates, and agents of change leading the way. If you see yourself influencing how public policy is made; launching a disruptive, forward-thinking social enterprise; or working with urban communities to ensure access to clean air and water, affordable renewable energy, food, education, healthcare, and housing, an Urban Sustainability MA degree is the right one for you.
We have recently added a Certificate in Spatial Analysis and Geographic Information Systems option to our degree program. The certificate option is a 36-semester credit, four-semester program that can be completed in two years. Students completing this program will graduate with an Urban Sustainability Master of Arts degree and a Certificate in Spatial Analysis and Geographic Information Systems.

This is a low-residency program. Students attend classes and engage in residency activities for six days at the beginning of each semester. Students will also attend a 4-day residency (on or off campus to be determined) near the middle of the semester. Throughout the remaining weeks of the semester, students work independently, online in a course management system, and in real time, up to three hours per week in a web conferencing environment.
