In 2014, CEES (now named the Sabin Center) partnered with 26 faculty from across campus to establish the Sustainability Graduate Programs. In addition to the Master of Arts in Sustainability (MAS) and a certificate program, Wake Forest offers two unique dual degree programs – the JD/MA in Sustainability and the Masters of Divinity/MA in Sustainability. In July 2017, Stan Meiburg, Former Deputy Administrator of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was appointed as the new director of the Sustainability Graduate Programs. 

Program Philosophy: Guided by a university motto that charges us to pursue our best self in the name of humanity, Pro Humanitate, The Sustainability Graduate Programs call on a vast array of scholars and practitioners. We are committed to advance a shared mission aimed at developing solutions to some of the world’s most intractable problems. Here, the next generation of change agents explore emerging solutions through coursework and research with faculty experts across multiple disciplines. Our immersive strategic alliances empower students to engage with truly committed partners.
