About the MSc Degree Program

The Master of Science (MSc) in Sustainable Development, Management, and Policy (SDMP) invites students from diverse backgrounds to explore sustainability through a multidisciplinary lens. The MSc degree is a two-year, full-time program in which students learn skills needed to design and implement sustainable development strategies on the household, business, city, regional, and national levels.

The MSc curriculum is composed of a unique combination of theory and practical hands-on application, and SDMP students are provided with a solid multidisciplinary background that draws on material from fields including economics, governance, social psychology, environmental sciences, geography, and management. Guided by expert faculty, students come to understand that effective implementation of sustainability strategies is a fundamental societal, economic, and environmental need. MU’s prioritization of sustainability as an integral part of the University offers additional unique opportunities to students, including the invitation to participate in the University’s Sustainability Committee.
