The 32-credit, online graduate program is recognized by the National Professional Science Master's Association (NPSMA). As a professional science master’s degree, students in the program will pursue advanced training in sustainability science, while simultaneously developing highly valued business skills. This affiliation demonstrates the program’s strong commitment to providing students with employer-desired skills, professional networking opportunities and career development.

Graduates of the program will be prepared to take on leadership roles where they will integrate their business expertise with knowledge of science and technology and a passion for sustainability.

“Sustainability leaders specialize in change management and embed sustainability into the core functions of their organizations,” explains Dr. Robert Taylor, professor in Montclair State’s Department of Earth and Environmental Studies as well as the program’s coordinator.
