Fieldwork is the centerpiece of the Urban Sustainability graduate program’s practice-and-theory learning model. Over 100 diverse public and private organizations have committed to serving as community partners and fieldwork sites for the program.

Students complete a full year of fieldwork prior to graduation and thus leave the program with experience, references, and on-the-job training for their resumes.

The fieldwork course sequence that accompanies the placement is designed to prepare students with the skills and habits of a reflective practitioner.
