What is Environmental Studies?

Environmental Studies is a joint program of the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences (ALES). It combines education in the principles of environmental science with a rich appreciation of the social dimensions of environmental issues. Courses drawn from four faculties (Arts, ALES, Native Studies, and Science) prepare you for careers in nature conservation, environmental resource management, law, & policy, urban planning, environmental education, and more.
