The Master of Environmental Sustainability has a mandatory research component whereby students work with a supervisor to complete a Major Research Paper or Thesis. Please browse our collections to learn more about the type of research our students are conducting.
Furthermore, the Capstone Seminar in Environmental Sustainability provides students in the Research Paper option with the opportunity to work in teams and partner with local organizations where they conduct research on a current sustainability issue, evaluate a set of candidate solutions, and recommend an approach.
Also, if you are planning on presenting a publication directly related to your thesis at a conference, you may be eligible for a travel grant. Eligible students include Master’s with thesis option students; doctoral students and students enrolled in a “fast-track” program, subject to the availability of funds.
