The program develops students' expertise in management, Earth systems science, assessment, law and policy, communication, ethics, and other areas critical to implementing sustainability. Students will strengthen teamwork, presentation, and leadership skills valued by employers, experience professional sustainability placements, develop portfolios of projects, and increase their networks of fellow professionals. A defining characteristic of Chatham's Master of Sustainability program is its students and the wide range of backgrounds that they contribute to the program. In addition to propelling a systems-thinking academic approach, MSUS students' interests and knowledge bases provide outlets for new ideas and transformative partnerships with fellow students. These opportunities and partnerships then flourish at Chatham's Eden Hall Campus, the first campus in the world built from ground up on the principles of sustainability, where students have the tools to test, experiment, and refine practices for use in the real world. In 2010, Chatham established what is now the Falk School of Sustainability, one of the earliest schools of its kind in the country, to provide leadership for overcoming sustainability challenges from the local level to a global scale. We recognized that the only way to ensure success in sustainability advancement was to offer programs of study built upon real-world learning and practice – the professional preparation needed to be difference makers for the world. Through the Falk School, students create careers that have impact.
