Find the Best Grad School Programs for a Sustainable Career: BEYOND THE BLOG

Green Philly is continuing the "Beyond the Blog" event series to give our community an in-depth perspective of current sustainability issues.

Are you considering graduate school or breaking into a career in sustainability?

For our latest event, we are bringing together local universities, professionals, and students to discuss how graduate programs can help further your career in sustainability. Hear about how different degrees help with industries and whether graduate school is right for you.

Local universities (Temple, Penn, Villanova, Jefferson, Penn State) will be on hand during networking hour to answer questions about their programs and application process. Network with local sustainability mentors and advocates to hear about job opportunities and what steps are needed to land the job you've been looking for.

Refreshments include salads from SweetGreen and local beer and sodas.
