Prescott College | Special Advertisement

When you think of obtaining a sustainable education, what schools come to mind?  Just look in your own backyard and you’ll find Prescott College – a college without walls.

At Prescott College, we strive to expand our students’ mindset about sustainable education and challenge them to take their local knowledge and expand it globally by integrating sustainable technology, research, and methodology into their experience.

We are an independent liberal arts college offering bachelor’s, master’s, and Ph.D. degrees, as well as teacher certification and adult education/lifelong learning opportunities.  Each of our educational programs reflects the College’s commitment to the environment and social justice.

Our On-campus Bachelor of Arts Program allows students to tailor undergraduate coursework to match their collegiate goals while preparing them for the real world.  Internships, independent studies, apprenticeships, and study abroad opportunities are strongly encouraged.  Prescott College students are able to work in interdisciplinary fields such as human development, ecopsychology, interdisciplinary arts, environmental education, human ecology, agroecology, outdoor and adventure education, counseling psychology, and wilderness leadership, among many others.

Returning students can take advantage of our Low-residency Bachelor of Arts Program. Each student pursues an independent-study curriculum with guidance from Prescott College faculty.  The coursework is completed in the student’s home community through the assistance of local, qualified mentors.  This flexible structure allows students to maintain their family and work life while they study at a distance.

The Low-residency Master of Arts Program allows students to earn a master’s degree from wherever they are in the world. Students can design just about any degree within five broad areas of study: counseling and psychology, education, environmental studies, humanities, and adventure education.  You won’t find a better graduate program to integrate your needs, interests, and career goals.

Our Ph.D. in Education, concentration in Sustainability Education, is a low-residency program that brings together several current undergraduate and graduate specialties, from environmental studies to psychology, to accommodate many individuals’ learning goals.  The program strives to contribute to synergistic learning and change in consciousness, education, culture, and society. Ph.D. students undertake an action-oriented dissertation, demonstrating passionate scholarship in the sustainability education niche.

The Lifelong Learning Center at Prescott College provides educational and service opportunities for learners of all ages. Courses extend learning opportunities similar to Prescott College degree courses to non-degree-seeking students who may only be interested in one particular topic or course offering. Programming includes educational travel; professional development; certification and continuing education; children, youth, and family; and community classes and educational programs.

We find that our students thrive in an environment that allows for self-direction and self-designed programs of study. Our faculty is highly qualified and committed to working with and supporting students in their individual area of interest.

Throughout our students’ education, whatever their path, we strive to make their experience personal, fuel their passion, and help them find meaning in their work.  We challenge them to ask important questions: “Who am I serving?” and “How am I impacting humanity, the eco-system, or my community?”  When you graduate from Prescott College, our curriculum and the life skills gained here will be transferrable to both your work and daily sustainable living.

In addition to the main campus in Prescott, the College operates a center in Tucson.  The Tucson Center serves students residing in Tucson and other southern Arizona communities.  The Center is a meeting place for students, faculty and advisors, and provides opportunities for students in similar study areas to meet and discuss their work.
