International Students

Full-Time, Part-Time, and Evening Course Options

Wake Forest’s Sustainability Graduate Programs offer an interdisciplinary, comprehensive curriculum. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from top industry experts and world-class faculty to gain the skills that set you apart. You can join our vibrant academic community in person or online.

Wake Forest offers two core pathways to earn your degree in a way that works best for you. Choose from real-time online courses that suit your lifestyle and complete the degree remotely without compromising your other commitments. Or, choose an in-person pathway and take classes at Wake Forest in Winston-Salem to experience campus life. You can also blend your mix of on campus and online classes to diversify your experience. Any way you choose, you’ll earn the degree that advances your purpose and your calling.

Credit Hour Requirements

International graduate students are required to enroll in at least 9 credit hours for the Fall and Spring semesters. No more than 3 hours of online credit can count towards that full-time enrollment requirement. This means that during Fall and Spring, F-1 students would need to enroll in at least 6 hours of on-campus credit hours, plus the 10 hours of core sustainability course work. Summer session is considered a vacation (optional) term. Students can enroll in on-campus courses, online courses, some combination of the two, or no courses at all.
