What is a BSc in Sustainable Development? Sustainable Development is the field of study concerning global issues of inequity, overconsumption and environmental degradation. The program aims to equip students with the tools and expertise to take on these issues and develop more stable socioeconomic solutions. Students may examine the interactions between society, industry and the environment, the consequences of current development strategies and how to improve present and future wellbeing.

Taking a BSc in Sustainable Development can equip students with a broader worldview and an understanding of how society and the environment affect each other. Students may also hone their decision-making and leadership skills as well as their initiative and creative thinking, applicable in many professions.

Tuition and registration costs differ between schools and programs, but usually a BSc in Sustainable Development takes four years of courses and practical work to earn. Applicants should research potential schools to find more information.

A BSc in Sustainable Development provides a strong background for a broad selection of careers involved with environmental efforts. Managerial roles in business or public works include landscape architects and zoning planners who oversee development projects and work to ensure responsible use of land and resources. For more research-oriented work, environmental and conservation scientists work within government agencies or private firms, often using their findings to consult on environmental policies and their implementation.

Obtaining a BSc in Sustainable Development is possible through programs offered at schools worldwide. Many schools also offer distance learning for students in remote areas or with busy schedules.
