Alternatives Directory: Canadian Graduate Environmental Studies Programs


CHOOSING a grad school is a difficult task. Not only do you have to find a school that meets all of your practical considerations, such as location, but you also need to find a place where you can grow and develop your interests. You are looking for a place that complements your style of learning. We hope that this directory will help you to find the program that meets all of your needs.

Our directory is limited strictly to those programs dealing with environmental studies from a social rather than scientific perspective. The resources listed below will provide information on a wider range of programs within the field of environmental studies, including programs in the natural and applied sciences. Please contact individual universities with questions about their programs.

This graduate directory is an annual event, so if you have any suggestions or know of any programs that should be added please contact us.
