Antioch University: New England’s Educating for Sustainability Masters

Posted on the 08 March 2011 by 2ndgreenrevolution @2ndgreenrev

Antioch University: New England’s Educating for Sustainability MastersAntioch University in New England offers a Masters in Educating for Sustainability (EfS). The program is open to applicants who are currently teachers in public and private school. Applicants can come from any subject area, an indication of how sustainability permeates all disciplines in academia.

Antioch defines EfS as “a way to teach about social justice, economics, and the environment.” The program offers participants the opportunity to apply what they are learning to their current classroom. Spring and Fall classes are online, while there is a brief, two week program on Antioch’s campus in Keene, New Hampshire during the summer. The online component and summer session allow practitioners from across the country to participate. Click here for the list of courses with descriptions.

According to their website, the program:

  • Integrates vision, theory, and practice.
  • Helps you guide students and schools towards a sustainable future.
  • Builds your leadership, advocacy, and change skills.
  • Focuses on the interconnection of environmental, economic, and social systems.
  • Engages you in the analysis of educational policy and practice.

2009 graduate Lara Gleason, director of sustainability at Graland Country Day School in Denver says,

“As a graduate of ANE’s EFS program, I feel well-equipped for a variety of career paths due to the relevancy of this degree. I am currently a Dean and Sustainability Coordinator at an independent school, both of these positions were the result of my degree. Integrating sustainability into curricula and campus practices has been highly rewarding. At the fall AASHE conference, I was impressed by the wide range of professions that my peers have pursued: working in schools and colleges, and starting their own schools and consulting businesses.”
