Joint master's to teach sustainability in global setting

asu-leuphana-sustainability-mastersA joint master's degree program in global sustainability science between ASU and Leuphana University of Lüneburg, Germany, has received German accreditation. Students who enroll in the program will spend time at both universities, work on joint projects and receive a degree from both. Accreditation marks major milestone for the program, which is the first of its kind at ASU and represents the university's global education efforts.  “Reaching sustainable development goals requires a different type of international education and new forms of institutional collaborations among universities and other institutions of higher learning,” said ASU President’s Professor Manfred Laubichler, who directs the joint ASU-Leuphana Center for Global Sustainability and Cultural Transformation. ASU and Leuphana also collaborated on a “global classroom” project taught by professors from both institutions and are working together on an increasing number of research projects.
