Join an interdisciplinary master’s program that challenges you to look at natural, social and built environmental differently. In this self-directed program, centred on an individual Plan of Study, you will learn how to redefine the boundaries of environmental research to create positive social and sustainable change.
Students pursuing a Master in Environmental Studies (MES) may study these critical issues:
- Urban planning
- Environmental management
- Global inequalities
- Energy and climate change
- Sustainable food systems
- Indigenous justice
In place of a fixed set of curriculum offerings, the MES approach to learning supports students’ ownership of and responsibility for their education through a Plan of Study. You will develop your own Plan of Study with the support of a faculty advisor, who will provide personalized guidance as you transition through your studies, including internship opportunities. The program also offers the flexibility to complete your MES research work as a thesis, major paper, project or portfolio.
