First online MSFS program in the nation

Master of Science in Sustainable Food Systems (MSFS)
In today’s world of complex food and agriculture systems, we need leaders. Our Master of Science in Sustainable Food Systems program prepares future leaders in the burgeoning food movement with a graduate level interdisciplinary understanding of sustainable agricultural production, and a deep knowledge of the economic, ecological, and social forces driving food systems.

At Green Mountain College, we’ve been teaching about sustainability for over fifteen years. Our distance MSFS program -- built on the success of the College’s undergraduate major in sustainable agriculture and on the surging interest in food and agriculture in the U.S. and beyond -- is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools & Colleges (NEASC), and is designed to provide students with the skills to conduct in-depth interdisciplinary investigations into the complex arena of their own bioregional food systems. Our MSFS students graduate with the knowledge and confidence to become leaders and join a cutting-edge community ready to make a difference.
