We take our intention to serve the future a step further—starting with a course in sustainability in every undergraduate program. From there we offer a number of degrees with concentrations and majors designed around Green initiatives and careers, including renewable energy management, natural healing methods and environmental policy.

I was so pleased with the one-on-one attention I received from Alicia (admissions counselor). Everything was so quick beyond belief; I did not expect for things to run so quick and smooth. I loved her attitude and support. She was rooting for me a lot and that really helped reinforce my decision to move forward with pursuing this field with the University. She was very thorough in our assessment of the Alternative Medicine program and answered all of my questions.

My admissions counselor was warm and friendly and extremely knowledgeable. She was also very patient, and answered all of my questions because I had quite a few. She was very good at explaining the program, and what my expectations would be. She offered to follow up with me and even scheduled an appointment that was convenient for me. She has the perfect personality for this occupation, especially since she has her own life experience as a student and can offer a real world opinion, and knows what to focus on in helping future students know what to expect. I really appreciated her help and her willingness to go in depth about the program.
