Earthship Academy is becoming officially accredited!

We are pleased to have now a partnership with Western Colorado University’s Master in Environmental Management program. 

Applications for the graduate program are free until November 1. 

The two-year, project-based degree can be done from anywhere in the world. Whether you are seeking a graduate program that will allow you to incorporate your independent study and field experience into a second-year master’s project or interested in attending the academy for graduate credit, this innovative program may be for you. 

Western offers three tracks: 

All three tracks have international opportunities and students can focus much of their second year of study on Biotecture. 

Students do 600+ hour projects instead of a traditional thesis and these projects can be accomplished anywhere in the world and can be developed in a way to count for the Earthship Academy’s requirements for the independent and field study.  

The program also is also offering their first Earthship Biotecture Academy Fellowship for the 2018-19 school year.  Preference will be given to applicants who are able to secure a match with project partners. If matched, this fellowship provides $10,000 toward tuition over the course of the MEM program.
