Inquiring minds

Gain a deeper understanding of our world! Our programs provide you with a holistic and multi-faceted understanding of our world, and the issues our environment, people and planet face today. You’ll come out of our programs with the knowledge and hands-on skills that will make you highly employable.

We ensure you have the most useful learning experience through classes that provided computer-based geographical analysis skills and fieldwork experience in addition to conventional lectures. Learn to use technologies such as cartography and geomatics to solve geographical questions, and gain unforgettable field experience in Canada’s north and around the globe.

We also provide several options to enhance your learning experience. The Environmental Studies programs were traditionally bilingual with mandatory language requirements, but now you have the choice to study in English, or in French, or both! You can also choose to participate in the CO-OP program, where you get four paid internships. You can come out of your degree with real work experience, making you much more employable and giving you a big head start on your career.
