Master in Environmental Studies (MES)

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.

Critical Issues

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.
