Program Information
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Environmental Studies
Description Resolving environmental issues requires a dialogue between pure and applied sciences, the social sciences, and humanities. The degradation of the biological and biophysical environment has roots in the structure of human societies while solutions to environmental problems have an impact on human livelihoods. A number of academic departments and institutes at McGill promote graduate-level research and training on environmental topics and have faculty members whose main research interest falls in this domain. As such, environmental research is widespread throughout the McGill community. The Environment option provides a vehicle whereby discipline-based graduate programs can easily and effectively incorporate collaborations from at least one other discipline into their research. The Environment option is currently available with the following graduate programs: Anthropology, Atmospheric and Oceanic Studies, Biology, Bioresource Engineering, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Entomology, Epidemiology, Geography, Law, Experimental Medicine, Micriobiology, Parasitology, Philosophy, Plant Science, Renewable Resources, and Sociology.
