Dear BuildingGreen Bulletin Subscriber,

As we begin the New Year, I'm hearing optimistic news about design firms hiring again, long-delayed construction projects getting underway, and an economic recovery just around the corner. As construction picks up, one thing is almost certain: there will be a growing demand that sustainability be an integral part of these projects.

Now is a great time to hone your skills in sustainable design. Since 2004, BuildingGreen has partnered with Boston Architectural College (BAC) on the most comprehensive online sustainable design curriculum in the country--now branded as the Sustainable Design Institute.

New | Half Price Tuition

Graduates of BAC degree programs and certificate programs can take any Continuing Education, Landscape Institute or Sustainable Design Institute courses at fifty percent off the current tuition price.*

The spring course offerings are the best-ever. Take a look at the list below.

Registration for Spring 2011 is now open.

Spring 2011 Sustainable Design Courses

The half-semester, graduate-level courses are online, instructor-led, interactive, asynchronous and limited to 15 students each. Instructors are building industry experts. Courses may be taken individually or as part of the Institute's sustainable design certificate program, which offers four possible graduate certificates (see www.the-bac.edu/green for details).
