The Environmental Studies graduate degree programs build on an interdisciplinary approach to the environment in which the social sciences, humanities, arts, and natural sciences meet and inform each other. Offered in the new Faculty of Environmental & Urban Change, our individualized Masters and Doctoral programs engage in environmental, experiential and future-oriented learning. Both programs are designed to teach and empower diverse thinkers through multi-disciplinary approaches and hands-on learning opportunities by engaging in an extensive array of environmental concerns, approaches, and actions to make positive change.
Master in Environmental Studies (MES)
Join an interdisciplinary Master’s program that challenges you to look at natural, social and built environments differently. In this self-directed program, centred on an individual Plan of Study, with an advisor and supervisor, you will learn how to redefine the boundaries of environmental research to create positive social and sustainable change.
PhD in Environmental Studies
Join the most diverse doctoral program exploring environmental concerns and approaches related to natural, social, political, cultural, and urban issues. Creatively redefine the boundaries of environmental research and analyze how theoretical and practical matters intersect, and how reflexive, rigorous, critical and creative thinking can inform environmental research, practice, policy and change.
