Master’s Concentration in SDCC
The MS in Environmental Studies with a concentration in Sustainable Development and Climate Change (SDCC) integrates courses in environmental science, social science, and organizational leadership. Graduates are prepared for a variety of environmental careers in the public and private sector including environmental regulation, environmental consulting, local and regional planning, and environmental non-profit leadership.
The SDCC program emphasizes the need to build trust and foster the commitment of participants in effectively addressing environmental problems. To that end, the SDCC program teaches students how to help create a shared vision that reflects the diverse views of a community by integrating and communicating technical, scientific, social and economic information as well as local or indigenous knowledge.

Peace Corps Master’s International Program
The Peace Corps Master’s International program gives students customized curriculum and training in technical skills and community development leading to successful community-based work in the Peace Corps. While serving as Peace Corps volunteers, Master’s International students conduct their master’s or doctoral research. They receive guidance from an AUNE faculty with deep experience and close ties to ongoing international research initiatives in Africa, Central America, and elsewhere.
Practical, hands-on learning is a keystone of an AUNE education and you can’t get much more real-world than the Peace Corps. An AUNE graduate degree readies you to tackle the world’s most challenging issues: climate change, conservation, resource management, and international environmental policy. Combine that with your Peace Corps experience, and you’ll find a wide range of careers open up to you after graduation.
