DescriptionThe M.Env. in Environmental Assessment integrates the human and biogeophysical aspects of environmental assessment in a multidisciplinary academic and real-world setting. The program combines scholarly excellence and practical experiences with an effective policy-focused approach to the use of scientific knowledge and procedures.

Students in the program develop a sound and critical understanding of environmental assessment processes and methodologies and exposed to a range of social science and public policy considerations involved in environmental planning, sustainable development and resource decision-making. The program is designed to enhance their knowledge of the biogeophysical environment and provide them with a thorough understanding of how to apply geographic information systems (GIS) to environmental decision-making. An important component of the M.Env. program is a four-month internship during which students gain hands-on experience under professional supervision. This practicum allows them to relate environmental assessment theory to practice and extend their skills through direct application in a governmental, non-governmental, or private-sector organization.
