The BAC's Sustainable Design Certificate is the oldest academic credential in this subject in the United States. It includes a flexible range of courses from The Sustainable Design Institute.

To earn the certificate, students must complete six courses in the program and maintain a cumulative B- average. The Sustainable Design Institute offers over 30 eight-week, online, graduate-level courses in sustainable design principles and practices. A bachelor's degree is required for enrollment in the certificate program. Students who do not have a bachelor's degree should contact us.

"The classes were significantly more demanding and rigorous than I had anticipated for online education, and I found that there was a very positive, stimulating aspect to the wide diversity of student backgrounds."
—Elizabeth Russini, architect
