Doctorate in Environmental Studies

Unique in Canada, our PhD program engages with an extremely diverse array of environmental concerns and approaches. Our doctoral students explore natural, social, political, cultural, urban and other environments and connect conventional disciplines and practices in ways that encourage viewing issues through a broader, more contextual perspective.

To cultivate and enhance our interdisciplinary research culture, we welcome students from a wide range of backgrounds in the humanities, social sciences and natural science. At the same time, an ongoing critical dialogue about the ways that “the environment” is defined and redefined, and the implications this has for environmental researchers, is an important aspect of the program.
