Student Experience

Why choose the Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change? These are just a few of the reasons students tell us they enjoy their experience with us!

Experiential, hands-on education

You’ll hear a lot about “experiential education” at York. These hands-on experiences make your lessons come alive, as you gain the technical skills and tools necessary for your academic and professional development. In EUC, you’ll start in the classroom with guest lectures, case studies and lab work, and move into field courses in locales ranging from the Greater Toronto Area to the Costa Rican rainforest at our Las Nubes EcoCampus. You will develop your skills in the community through outreach and awareness projects and in work placements and internships.

A supportive, inclusive community

Join a close-knit community of passionate students looking to change the world. In EUC, you will be supported by a team of academic advisors, peer mentors and career development experts who will help you achieve success in your studies and beyond. Connect with our program-specific or sustainability-focused clubs, or get involved in the broader YorkU community with the 400-plus clubs available – or start your own. 

A student learning experience like no other

Students in EUC are changemakers who are interested in achieving personal success and making positive change. Our programs will provide you learning inside and outside the classroom. And, you’ll have lots of opportunities to get involved and enjoy the campus experience. At York U, you can participate in academic talks and conferences, professional workshops and social events, as well as meet diverse and bold thinkers focused on making positive change.
