Graduate Program Director: Sean Nesselrode Moncada

Introducing RISD’s new graduate program in Nature–Culture–Sustainability Studies from RISD Media on Vimeo.

Students in RISD’s Liberal Arts Nature–Culture–Sustainability Studies MA program develop scholarly expertise in the rapidly evolving field of interdisciplinary environmental studies. Working closely with faculty experts in the environmental humanities and social sciences, they embark on self-directed pathways of research in focus areas such as Anthropocene studies, climate change cultures, green urbanisms and sustainable design futures.

Graduates of the program will be well positioned to make vital contributions in the realms of environmental advocacy, public policy, education, urban planning and more. They will also be poised to pursue advanced doctoral study in humanities and social science fields.
