Master in Environmental Studies (MES)




¿Qué aprenderé?

With 50 years of experience in graduate education and a profound commitment to environmental and social justice, the Graduate Program in Environmental Studies contributes to solving some of the most pressing socio-environmental issues of our times. The Faculty of Environmental Studies has long recognized the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to understanding complex local and global problems. The Faculty prides itself on an interdisciplinary research approach to intertwined social, cultural, ecological, economic and political issues. The Faculty of Environmental Studies has developed master’s and PhD programs offering the opportunity to examine a wide-range of issues within a dynamic, flexible and supportive structure. These qualities allow graduate students to bring their own interests to the program, where passions are nourished and encouraged with the guidance of dedicated faculty members and support personnel.

Anything involving an environment can be studied in our graduate programs. Examples of past students' research topics include:

• rethinking climate change policy

• ecocultural studies

• democratizing the global city

• children's environmental education programs in zoos

• community-based renewable energy development

• imagining city building for social change

• theorizing the socioeconomic rights of poor single mothers in Canada
