Master of Environmental Science - Program Overview
The Master of Environmental Science (MEnvSc) is a course-based professional graduate program. Students typically come from undergraduate training in environmental science, geology, biology, chemistry, physics or engineering.
The MEnvSc program offers three specializations:
Terrestrial and Aquatic Systems: Students are trained to understand 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: Students are trained in 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
Our students have access to over 30+ challenging graduate courses that prepare them for the professional world of work and are taught by some of Canada’s brightest scientists and industry leaders.
Master of Environmental Science – Internship Overview
MEnvSc candidates pursuing the Internship option typically complete a work term during the summer months. Since the program’s inception, MEnvSc interns have secured dynamic roles across all sectors and industries of the environmental science landscape. MEnvSc internships are required to be:
A minimum of 16 consecutive weeks long within April to August
Full-time work (typically 35 hours/week)
Paid employment (typically at least minimum wage)
Our exclusive job board opens annually on December 1. Employers are encouraged to post early to have access to the most robust talent pool possible.
