Our program cost includes all tuition and fees for your entire program of study, including travel and accommodations to sites in Malta and Italy for class-related field study. The estimated total program cost for Academic Year 2017-2018 is approximately $21,000. The final detailed program cost and fee structure will be published in early January and should be in the range of $20,000 to $22,500.


We have a highly favorable program cost compared to other master’s degrees in sustainability, which range from $40,000 to $60,000.


This is a highly competitive program cost compared to other master’s degrees in sustainability, which range from $40,000 to $60,000. Our cost advantage is due to several favorable factors. These include the fact that we have a one-year program, that higher education costs in Malta are lower than in the United States, and that you do not have to pay some fees at JMU because our master’s degree is a study abroad program.

You will need to budget for your housing, utilities, food, and bus transport while you are studying in Malta. Based on past student experiences, your total living costs will range from $450-$900 per month depending on the number of roommates that you have, how much you cook or eat out, and so on. We will help you arrange accommodations in convenient locations.

We will also have graduate assistantships available; information about these will be posted in early January.

JMU’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will also work with you to discuss student loans, scholarship opportunities, and other ways of financing your graduate education.
