Sustainability in the Urban Environment

Sustainability in the Urban Environment


To respond to the increasing demand for a workforce equipped to meet the sustainability challenges of the 21st century, City College of New York offers the Sustainability in the Urban Environment graduate program. This innovative, interdisciplinary program draws upon emerging approaches in  the disciplines of architecture, engineering, science, and social sciences. 


The Sustainability Masters degree program consists of 30 credits of coursework. All students who successfully complete the program requirements receive a Master of Science in Sustainability degree from CUNY/The City College of New York. As a rule, earning the degree requires at least three semesters of full-time study (typically Fall-Spring-Fall), and more for those who study part-time. Costs of the program will differ depending on whether a student is a New York state resident or nonresident. The tuition rates that apply are those designated "Masters in Architecture & Engineering" in the CCNY schedule of tuition and fees.
