Graduate Faculty

The MS Sustainability Science (MS3) Program is an transdisciplinary graduate program supported by faculty and staff from at least four departments across two colleges. Part of the School of Earth & Sustainability, MS3 is located within the Department of Environmental Conservation in the College of Natural Sciences.  The program and our students draw critical support from the Department of Geosciences and the Stockbridge School of Agriculture within the College of Natural Sciences, and the Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning within the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.  Below are just some of the faculty and staff involved with the program, either by teaching courses that apply to the MS3 curriculum or by engaging with students through internships.  Please see individual departments for more information on faculty and staff (e.g., degrees, institutions, and years).
