We are recognized nationally and internationally as one of the leading public institutions teaching, researching and providing consulting in sustainability. Our College's Masters of Science in Sustainable Design degree program (MSD) harnesses the rich and diverse expertise of our faculty around a common objective.
We guarantee to students in this program an intensive exposure to the best in sustainable design thinking from an international vantage point, the opportunity to explore in depth their own areas of research, and the chance to become a graduate of the University of Florida-one of the world's great public research universities.
