Experiential Learning

The University of Alberta encourages sustainability-related learning and research both on and off campus. We offer many opportunities to study and research sustainability. Degrees, courses and service-learning options teach students about sustainability. Grants, class projects and student organizations help students apply their sustainability knowledge in the real world.

Sustainability Scholars offers graduate students the chance to work on applied research projects with professional mentors from the City of Edmonton and other institutions. Projects last 3 months each summer and are paid competitively.
