Many of the most interesting and effective responses to cultural, economic, and ecological challenges today are coming from social innovators and entrepreneurs engaged in interdisciplinary problem solving.


The true trailblazers are also building on local assets and contributing to the health and vitality of the people and places from which they come.

The programme

In the MA in Social Innovation and Sustainability Program, students are challenged to consider social justice and empowerment theories to design inclusive, equitable, and accessible practices that embrace diverse communities and facilitate the participation of those historically excluded from policy- and decision-making arenas.

Part of the Goddard Graduate Institute, the Master of Arts in Social Innovation and Sustainability is a 48-credit degree intended for students who seek low-residency, interdisciplinary, and self-designed graduate studies.

Students will acquire the practical knowledge needed to advance in their careers or start a new vocational path, and will gain the theoretical foundation to generate innovative and sustainable methods of solving vexing social, environmental, and economic challenges.
