Master's students whittling together, learning in the forest, and working in the community

Catalyze change and transcend boundaries.

The Rubenstein School offers a Master’s of Professional Studies in Leadership for Sustainability designed for emerging and experienced leaders who wish to deepen their capacity to catalyze change and transcend boundaries.

This two-year, low-residency program offers an innovative blend of week-long residential intensives (taking place in Vermont, Durham, N.C., and the Bay area in California), interactive online courses, professional coaching, and a diverse network of faculty and professional affiliates engaged in change-making work across the world. Students working full-time in a wide variety of professional fields and communities explore leadership practices that are inspired by the wisdom of nature and challenge forces of domination and oppression. In year two, students conduct a capstone project for which they apply their learnings in their home community.

Our Master’s of Professional Studies combines the theoretical background of a traditional research degree (Master’s of Arts or Master’s of Science) with an applied, professionally-oriented curriculum.
