Master of Environmental Studies


This is an interdisciplinary program designed to train graduates to investigate, understand and appreciate issues peculiar to northern environments and cultures. Graduates of the program will have the skills to meet the challenges of environmental and cultural issues faced by communities, industries and services in northern areas. The research focus of the program will be the boreal north – that area covered by the boreal forest and the ecotone between the forest and tundra – although research in the Arctic and far north will not be excluded. Areas in other parts of the world with characteristics similar to those in the boreal north will also be considered as appropriate locations for study. This program is a joint program between Geography & Anthropology.
