About

The Sustainable Development Practice Program at University of Florida is jointly administered by the Center for Latin American Studies and the Center for African Studies. 

Overview

The Master of Sustainable Development Practice (MDP) Program at University of Florida offers the following academic programs:

  • An interdisciplinary Master’s degree in Sustainable Development Practice • A graduate certificate in Sustainable Development Practice
  • A graduate certificate in Sustainable Development Practice (SDP)

Key facts:

  • The MDP prepares development practitioners to address development challenges in creative and dynamic ways, integrating the academic and development pillars of natural sciences, social sciences, health sciences and management through a vigorous and innovative program curriculum. The MDP Degree requires 45 credits of course work: 24 major or core credits across the four pillars, and 21 elective credits through which a student focuses on a specialization (for example entrepreneurship, agriculture, ecotourism, gender, community forest management, nonprofits, or M&E). 
  • The MDP is a non-thesis degree. Each student must successfully complete a set of requirements including a summer field practicum with a host organization, the development of a poster presented in a public poster session, a final practicum report approved by their committee, and a public presentation and private defense with committee members of the final report. All students will be expected to meet learning outcome objectives defined for knowledge, skills and professional behavior. Students are required to develop a study plan approved by the MDP Program Graduate Coordinator and by their supervisory committee.
