The M.S. in Sustainable Design at Thomas Jefferson University was developed by a group of the country’s top sustainable designers and experienced sustainability professors. The result is an award-winning trans-disciplinary, collaborative design program. Students build problem-solving skills to develop market-driven solutions to become leaders in sustainable design to better serve society.

Based on an integrated design education model, the program offers a unique advantage by introducing students early in the design process to experts, design options and real-world constraints. Projects range from high performing sustainable design projects to sustainable initiatives for non-profits and start-ups. Industry partnerships feature prominently, providing networking opportunities and hands-on practice with real-world challenges. A strong integration with the design and sustainability community in Philadelphia provides students and graduates ample opportunities for internships, volunteer positions, and job placement. With flexible scheduling options, students can earn their M.S. in Sustainable Design on-campus, online or a hybrid of both. The program also qualifies as a STEM program which allows international students to apply for a 24-month extension to their Optional Practical Training.
