Mandate:to provide outstanding graduate training at the doctoral level in sustainability & sustainable practices, facilitating interdisciplinarity across Queen’s faculties. The website is currently being updated with information on the program.
Master's of Environmental Studies (MES)
The MES program at Queen's University provides graduate level training in the field of Environmental Sustainability by practicing an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the long-term nature and impacts of environmental change, the connections between today's decisions and tomorrow's welfare, and the strong dependence of human well-being on environmental quality.
The MES program meets a growing student demand for post-graduate training relevant to environmental careers in industry, government, and non-governmental organizations. It responds to a very strong market in Canada for professionals with environmentally related skills (Environmental Careers Organization).

The School of Environmental Studies offers the following options:
The emphasis on interdisciplinarity reflects the nature of environmental issues, and is an alternative to more specialized discipline-based programs.
The MES provides advanced knowledge and research skills in two or more areas of specialization, an appreciation of the breadth of environmental issues, and an ability to interact with professionals outside a single discipline.
The PhD program in environmental sustainability will be integrated and coordinated across Queen’s faculties to meet the needs of students and society. This program will facilitate interdisciplinarity, and will meet the challenge of establishing ways that Queen’s Faculty members can work across disciplinary and institutional boundaries to develop collaborative and integrated programs of teaching and research.
