Interdisciplinary MA/MS in Sustainability Studies
The Sustainability Studies program at Texas State University is truly unique. Since the program is interdisciplinary, I’ve had the privilege to be exposed to various areas of sustainability. My fellow peers have different educational backgrounds, which allows for strong classroom discussions about complex and intricate global issues. The program offers several courses that I never considered to be related to the field, which has enhanced my understanding of how sustainability can be applied in many different subjects. Throughout this experience, I’ve strengthened my ability to think critically, listen to other ideas, and develop strategies to help mitigate global environmental issues. This program has challenged me to make better individual choices, and increased my awareness on how academia can be a channel in creating change in order to make the world more sustainable.
