Welcome to The School of Environmental Studies

The Earth's environment is under stress, and the search for solutions is anything but simple: It requires an interdisciplinary approach to problem-solving and education. Our program emphasizes the diverse contributions of technology, the natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences to understanding and solving environmental problems.

What We Offer

  • Interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate training
  • Integrative courses addressing the scientific, socio-political, philosophical and economic aspects of environmental issues
  • A faculty with a broad range of expertise and teaching experience
  • National and international perspectives
  • A sense of community with chances to get involved - on campus, in the local community, and at the provincial, national, and global level
