I am pursuing Masters in Sustainable design. The coursework is well designed for students who do not have architectural background as well. All the assignments are well connected to each other teaching different points which help us understand the course better. The professors come up with fun activities to lessen the pressure of understanding about difficult topics.
All the professors are experts in their own subjects. There is absolute transparency between professors and students. They also introduce us with different opportunities where we can showcase our work. They arrange seminars which would help us become part of the sustainable community.
I am a graduate student pursuing MS in Sustainable Design at Thomas Jefferson University. The coursework is very interesting and engaging. The way our professors teach is very interactive and I always learn more than what I thought I would gain from a particular topic. We are also groomed on our soft skills based on class presentations and assignments. The coursework makes us think deeply about world issues and come up with ideas that are beyond just focusing on 'problems at hand'.
I feel connected with each of my colleagues while working with them and the credit goes to our professors. They encourage us to work in groups and explore each other's potential. We are pushed to come up with solutions that are innovative and holistic.
I have never felt overloaded with work. There is always time to reasearch and explore more each week as we progress every semester. The subjects I have taken so far have taught me a lot and essentially changed my perspective for the better.
