Climate and Society is a 12-month interdisciplinary MA program. A set of tailor-made core courses provide a scientific basis for inquiry. They stress interdisciplinary problem solving for how to address the climate crisis. Elective courses allow students to apply their climate knowledge to other subject matters and tailor the program to their interests. Students start as a cohort in the fall, attend classes full-time during the fall and spring semesters and complete an internship or a capstone and coursework over the summer. In academic year 2023-2024, the MA Climate and Society program will feature some exciting updates to the curriculum coursework and sequencing. Curricular updates are essential for maintaining vibrant, timely, and relevant educational programming.
