Short Term Study Abroad – Sustainability Opportunities

Here is an opportunity to interact with cutting edge technology and experts in the field of renewable energy and sustainability, while accelerating your career.

The GREEN Program enhances your understanding of the Renewable Energy and Sustainability industries by taking you outside of the classroom and into the field. By gaining exclusive access to different Renewable Energy facilities in Costa Rica and Iceland, you will receive the hands-on experience you need to accelerate your career. The GREEN Program provides a perfect balance of interactive online modules, engaging group discussions, and exclusive facility visits to inform, engage, and inspire students of all majors.

The GREEN Program is a short-term experience which combines education, adventure, service learning and cultural immersion that creates a lasting impact and helps you gain global perspective to advance your career.

This year GREEN is launching a new program in Iceland, which was recently recognized as the “greenest” country in the World. This program is offered in partnership with Reykjavik University, which provides transferable academic credit upon completion of the 10-day program.

GREEN’s post-program benefits allow like-minded students to stay connected through the GREEN Alumni Network. The Network provides Alumni access to hundreds of other passionate students across the world, internship and job opportunities, as well as industry events.
