I am writing to invite applications to our ground-breaking Master of
Arts in Sustainability Studies program. It is a two-year, evening-only
part-time graduate program designed to empower change agents in the
field of sustainability.

Master of Arts in Sustainability Studies (MASS)
Contemporary ecological and societal crises present unprecedented
challenges and opportunities. Driven by increases in human population
and per capita consumption of resources, and shaped by the consequent
contamination and degradation of the natural and built environments, our
current path is clearly unsustainable. An integrative approach is
required if we are to create new options for a sustainable future. The
environmental challenges of the 21st century require individuals who
understand environmental and scientific complexities and can implement a
multi-disciplinary approach to environmental problem-solving at local,
regional and global scales.
The Ramapo College Master of Arts in Sustainability Studies (MASS) is a
ground-breaking program that unites the natural sciences, social
sciences and business fields to develop leading practitioners in the
emerging field of sustainability.
Students, drawn from diverse backgrounds and experiences, will build
upon their knowledge and skills to engage in scholarly discourse on
sustainability and its professional applications.
Students will collaborate with faculty and external partners to promote
sustainability in a variety of institutional, organizational, cultural,
commercial, and geographical contexts.
The program is designed to engage students in the emerging professional
practices and scholarly discourses of sustainability.
This is an intensive program, with a graduate-level work load, that
meets twice a week in the evenings, with once-a-month seminar sessions
also held in the evening.
