Isn’t living fun? Don’t you love breathing clean air and seeing a flower bloom? Isn’t it nice having only two arms and two legs, rather than a tail developed from radioactive water contamination? If you answered “Yes”, then Sustainable Development is the degree for you.

As a branch of Environmental Studies & Earth Sciences, Sustainable Development is a subdiscipline that focuses on solving issues of Ecology, Biodiversity, and Conservation, tapping into the resources the Earth already has and using them to their full potential.

Dabbling in Environmental Economics, Policy Making, and Resource Management, Sustainable Development is an interdisciplinary field, combining forces into creating either the perfect methods for sustaining life on earth, or creating Captain Planet - certainly one of the two.

Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Sustainable Development cover courses and concepts within:

• Sustainability Risks and Opportunities
• Natural, Environmental and Social Sciences

Also, the fields in which students will find jobs are vast, with careers like:

• Construction Project Management
• Sustainability Analyst
