Welcome to the School of Environmental Studies
Creating positive change?
We dig deep into environmental problems from three distinct perspectives: ethnoecology, ecological restoration and political ecology. Learn how to create positive change through our integrated undergraduate (double major, and minor), graduate (MA/MSc/PhD Interdisciplinary), co-op and professional programs.
Knowledge, commitment, and action
Learn through our potent mix of hands-on practice, big picture ideas, creativity and critical analysis. Almost every course has a field component, and some are entirely field-based.
Bold interdisciplinary research projects explore seafood ecology, politics of environmental campaigns on the Central Coast, traditional systems of land and resource management, ecological restoration and climate change (and many others).
