The Front Line Of The Future

The Master of Professional Science in Urban Sustainability and Resilience is designed for students interested in acquiring the knowledge, skills and hands-on practical engagement necessary for contributing to the urban challenges confronting cities on the front lines of climate change. Focusing on how the stressors and shocks of a changing climate and sea-level rise will impact the urban realm in areas such as health, housing, and crime, students will gain an understanding of the spatial and temporal transitions involved in pathways toward urban sustainability and resilience. This program offers students two tracks to pursue: one in sustainability, and one in resilience.
