The Master of Sustainable Transportation program (MST) explores sustainable transportation planning, policy and analysis and examines the growing concern for transportation's environmental, social, energy and economic impact on our society.

During the program, you will develop an awareness of green transportation strategies and gain a solid background with practical applications in environmental transportation. The program is divided into three areas of concentration:
  • Planning and Livable Communities
  • Environmental Issues and Impacts
  • Policy Development, Health and Economics
Designed for working professionals, the program is offered in a convenient, part-time, online format. The curriculum is comprised of 43 credits offered through nine courses over three years. You will develop a capstone project and apply your learning to real-world cases.

Courses are taught by UW engineering and planning faculty and industry professionals using the latest online technologies, so you'll enjoy the same quality education as students on campus.
