sample online sustainability courses

Here is a list of online sustainability courses offered by UMass Amherst in the past three years. This will give you an idea of the types of online courses you would have the opportunity to choose from. As with all colleges and universities, online courses come and go, and this list is subject to change.

Depending on how you craft your concentration in sustainability, there may be online courses offered through other academic departments you’ll want to take. For example, if you want to study health and the environment, you may want to take some online health courses. Want to manage a farm or run your own green business? Add some online business courses. Or maybe you have past credits you can bring into the mix. The choice is yours. Review our full list of online courses to get a sense of what might be possible for you.
