The MES is a full-time, 12-month program that responds to the growing need of society to understand and develop solutions to the environmental and human well-being challenges facing us in the 21st century. To encourage transdisciplinary perspectives, each MES student will have an advisory committee comprised of a primary supervisor and two other faculty members from at least two disciplines or departments. The MES offers four concentrations:
Adaption and Resilience
Global Change Science
The Sustainability Transition
Upon graduation, MES graduates will have acquired a transdisciplinary perspective on environmental issues, learned to use methodologies and tools relevant to environmental protection and sustainability solutions, and will be well prepared for a variety of careers in the private and public sectors, or for further studies at the doctoral level. The hands-on supervision of students guarantees the quality of student learning overall. By working closely with their individual thesis advisor and advisory committees on an extended project, students can anticipate a strong and effective learning environment.
Please note: This is a new program offered by the School of the Environment. No offer of admissions will be made to the program pending final approval by the Ministry of Colleges and Universities. We will begin accepting applications pending this approval.
