The MSc is a degree designed to allow students to gain deep insight into scientific methodologies and their use in the degree’s field of focus. It is distinguished from other advanced degrees in the same academic field by its emphasis on practical and measurable solutions to problems, as opposed to theoretical understanding and speculation.

What is an MSc in Sustainability? As a master’s of science degree, it involves interdisciplinary studies in various fields that come together to provide a methodology for measuring sustainability in corporate behavior, building, and economic development. Programs may focus on initiatives like green building, and a variety of certificates of specialization are available to add value to the degree, both during a student’s course of study and after graduation.

Students of sustainability learn how to use data to innovate improvements to systems, a broad skill with a wide range of applications. They also learn great analysis and modeling skills, allowing them to gain a better understanding of the world around them, and communication skills that help them express that understanding.

There’s no accurate way to predict the costs for pursuing a degree in sustainability. There are simply too many differences from school to school, even within the same country. Investigate tuition rates at different schools. Exploring international options could change your cost estimates a lot, especially if you look at online programs.

Sustainability graduates work in a variety of roles that revolve around the use of resources efficiently. In the private sector, they include operations managers and environmental engineers. Atmospheric and space scientists in both public and private institutions are also commonly found to be degree holders in this field. By helping companies, governments, and non-profits learn to use resources more efficiently, workers with this credential help to make the world a better place.

To find the perfect program for your master’s studies, you need to check all your options. That means looking at local schools, online only programs, and international offerings.
