Take Action Against Climate Change
Become a leader capable of planning, implementing, and managing effective, just, and equitable climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies in this 2-year, low-residency graduate program. You’ll complete both in-person summer residency intensives and online coursework focusing on project-based, collaborative learning and research.
You will examine the science and the impacts of climate change; develop a thorough understanding of how climate data, society, policy, and governance influence decision making; and gain practical experience in leadership, management, and data science tools.
Our 1,100 acre landscape of innovations in farm, garden, forest, and managed lands practices will serve as your living laboratory to learn, experiment, and conduct research. You’ll begin making a difference by completing two applied research projects with a NGO, business, community, or governmental agency partner.
We will welcome our first cohort of students for the inaugural 12-day Summer Residency in 2025. They’ll join us for three 12-day campus residencies and four online semesters for a total of 44 credit hours.
A graduate of the Master of Applied Climate Studies program will be able to think about these problems with an interdisciplinary perspective and develop holistic and applied solutions — instead of relying on technological fixes.Dr. Joshua Arnold, Chair of the Environmental Studies department
