Master of Environmental Science Overview

Grad Programs in Env Sci

The Master of Environmental Science (MEnvSc) program is a 12-month course-based professional program committed to the development of well-trained practitioners in environmental science, primarily to meet the needs of industry, governments, and environmental policy/education organizations.

The MEnvSc offers three fields of study:

  • Terrestrial and Aquatic Systems: A major focus is understanding the flux of contaminants and excess nutrients through surface and sub-surface environments and the methods/solutions needed to remediate contaminated or damaged environmental systems.
  • Conservation and Biodiversity: A major focus is the application of ecological theory and principles to real-world conservation challenges.
  • Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation: Students are trained in the science, data analysis, and rigorous assessment process for the impacts of climate change on a wide range of natural and human systems.

Each field is designed to allow flexibility for students with different backgrounds. All options have access to a broad range of course offerings.

In all three fields, after eight months of coursework, students complete either a 4-month:
