Total credit for a concentration in Sustainability & Social Practice: 15.

Students must take one required studio course, as well as two studio electives and two academic electives, and they have access to courses throughout the MICA curriculum that focus on ecology, sustainability, urban studies, and social engagement. The menu of electives is designed to be flexible and will adjust to new course offerings; this gives students the opportunity to design a progression of courses that accurately supports their respective backgrounds and developing interests, a necessity in such a rapidly changing field. Students will also participate in a year-end colloquium session involving student presentations, discussion, and project exhibitions.
