Graduate Study at the Falk School of Sustainability, Chatham University

SUST at RU received notice of this graduate program in sustainability at Chatham University in Pittsburgh via the Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS) email list. Note that several research/teaching assistantships are available to defray tuition costs and provide stipends.

The Falk School of Sustainability at Chatham University is excited to announce a new opportunity for applicants to our Master of Sustainability (MSUS) program: Summer Sustainability Fellowships. All students in the MSUS program are required to complete a summer placement in a professional setting (not-for-profit, government, or private sector) following completion of the first academic year.  Thanks to our new Falk Sustainability Endowment, we are offering five competitive awards of up to $5000 to support summer placements for students joining the program in fall 2014. We expect to expand this opportunity in future years.

Space is available in the fall 2014 cohort, and in addition to these fellowships, we have several graduate assistantships to award as well. Students in our program come from a range of academic, cultural, and other backgrounds, but share a common commitment to sustainability. In our highly experiential program they collaborate to address the many environmental, economic, and social challenges we face from local to global scales. Please share this opportunity with current seniors or alumni who are interested in earning a sustainability degree.

The Falk School also is currently admitting students to our highly successful Master of Arts in Food Studies and to the first cohort of our new BA and BS in Sustainability.

Please direct questions about these programs to David M. Hassenzahl, Dean of the Falk School of Sustainability, or Trish Golla (
