Bachelor of Sustainability (BSUS)

Chatham University's Falk School of Sustainability has responded to challenging ecological and economic times with an innovative program: the Bachelor of Sustainability (BSUS). As a graduate of our program, you can do more than tell employers what you're capable of doing; you'll be able to show them what you've done.

The Bachelor of Sustainability program emphasizes leadership, teamwork, entrepreneurialism, and experience — the very skills that will serve you wherever your future after Chatham may take you. Here, you won't just learn how renewable energy technology works; you'll work with solar panels and windmills. You won't just take business courses; you'll design and operate a business. You won't just read about sustainability; you'll live and learn on a new sustainable campus — the first in the world built from the ground up on the principles of sustainability — and contribute to making it work better. And with these experiences, you'll not only have a deep knowledge of sustainability and its place in the world, but you'll develop a portfolio of accomplishments that will prove your value to any employer. Here's what you can expect:

  • To gain the knowledge, skills, and experiences that will make you competitive for a range of careers.
  • To work with faculty, fellow students, and university leaders to help develop and improve both the program and Chatham's Eden Hall Campus.
  • To graduate understanding your personal mission and the ways you can make an impact.
  • To know how to work with and lead teams to tackle and resolve complex problems.
  • To establish life-long friends and colleagues who have the same drive and green interests as you.
