SUMMARY

A degree in Sustainability Studies is a valuable choice and naturally a mandatory first step for students desiring to enter a career as a sustainability microbiologist, a human resources specialist, or a compliance officer. Interestingly, nationally, sustainability studies is an uncommon major coming in at the 235th most popular area of study. Last academic year, there were 812 sustainability studies degrees conferred. In-state tuition for sustainability studies at private colleges is, on average, 3.7 times more costly than their public counterparts.

With just 89 universities offering sustainability studies there might be a smaller selection of institutions that will have an option for you. If you are hoping to immerse yourself with other sustainability studies undergrads, look at colleges in Florida which have more undergrads admitted to sustainability studies than any other state. Zooming out, the top region to get a degree in sustainability studies is in the Southeast region with Florida International University, University of Florida, and George Mason University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the top conference to major in sustainability studies is the Southeastern Conference with University of Florida representing the conference. Based on our list on the best colleges, our choice for the best university for sustainability studies is Columbia University in the City of New York.

The best school does not have to be the 'best' school for you. There are tons of facets to think about when deciding on ​university. Features such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food might definitely alter one's inclinations on where to go to college. At authority.org, we evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are intrigued by which sustainability studies college boasts the top campus, the answer is New York University. If, for example, you are mostly interested in which university boasts the best campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more to evaluate all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life here and our choice for the university with the best student life for sustainability studies is University of Florida. Are you curious why? Continue reading to discover more about Authority's top choices. Some of our conclusions will probably shock you.

If price is a major deciding factor in your decisions, you might be cautious about Columbia University in the City of New York. Columbia University in the City of New York is our most expensive school for sustainability studies, at least for out of state enrollment. That being said, we have an entire list of the most expensive colleges that might put the cost at Columbia University in the City of New York into perspective. Additionally, you may be interested to know that sustainability studies is the 196th most expensive program in the US, with an average expense of $30,100. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for sustainability studies in the country is South Carolina demonstrated with a cost of $50,464 at the main university in the state Furman University. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the country for sustainability studies is the Southeast region which is best demonstrated with Guilford College with a cost of $37,920, Furman University with a cost of $50,464, and The University of the South with a cost of $44,784.

Our cheapest region for sustainability studies is the Plains region which is represented by Bellevue University with a cost of $7,176 and University of South Dakota with a cost of $11,172. On the bright side, the most affordable school for sustainability studies is CUNY Brooklyn College. Authority.org's entire list of the most affordable colleges can be explored here.

In-state learners can anticipate paying around $10,800 for a degree in sustainability studies. That price grows intensely to a median of $25,700 for the out-of-state public-school student. Our selection for the school constituting the best value for sustainability studies: Columbia University in the City of New York. Through this link you can find our comprehensive list on the schools we believe to be the best value overall. That being said, this idea is predicated on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for sustainability studies majors can differ, but two years after completing the major students will often earn in the neighborhood of $54,100. While there is a lot of variation in salary; top earners can make up to $97,300. Straight out of college, the lowest earning positions within the sustainability studies space earn $31,200, which could be worse. The top earning graduates from sustainability studies attended Columbia University in the City of New York and if you are looking for schools with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The general diversity of sustainability studies is decent, falling within the 50th percentile of all majors. The college with the most composite diversity for sustainability studies is New York University and here you can find our comprehensive list of the schools which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of Sustainability Studies ranks only in the 54th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even lower in the 43rd percentile. White collegians make up the largest share at 63% of those majoring in sustainability studies. Additionally, 55% of undergraduates seeking a sustainability studies major are women.

The median score of sustainability studies professors is 4.2 stars, a score that is 5% higher than the median across all majors; this is a good score. If you are searching for the most popular sustainability studies instructor in the nation, consider looking up Salome Fouts at Ohio State University-Main Campus. This might come as a shock, but the highest rated professors for sustainability studies by student are at Appalachian State University. If we including data other than simply rankings we find that the university possessing the best professors for sustainability studies is Columbia University in the City of New York. You can find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as some of the finest examples of professors in the country.

Finally, the hardest college to get into for sustainability studies is Columbia University in the City of New York. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we do have an extensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, here at Authority we do hope you understand that looking at the education process from context only informed by superlatives might create problems. We encourage you to read our other pages on different colleges and peruse a couple of Authority's background pages on beneficial details to think about as your college search develops.
