Environmental Studies


The graduate programs listed above participate in the Environmental Studies (ES) Collaborative Specialization which is offered through the School of the Environment at the University of Toronto. Graduate students admitted to a participating home department can apply to the collaborative program and pursue coursework and research in environmental areas. The School of the Environment currently has graduate students from across the disciplinary spectrum.

The School of the Environment offers a unique and comprehensive program of graduate study. By utilizing the University's extensive library holdings and faculty resources, it offers one of North America's most engaging and cross-disciplinary programs in the environment. One of the compelling strengths of the program is the interdisciplinary environment in which teaching and research are conducted. For example, in its core courses, professors from the humanities team teach with faculty from the social sciences, engineering, biology, and chemistry. Students are both able to specialize in an area of environmental research and gain exposure to a wide range of intellectual and methodological disciplines focused on environmental issues.

Upon successful completion of the degree requirements of the participating home department and the collaborative program, students receive the notation “Completed Collaborative Specialization in Environmental Studies” on their transcript and parchment.
