The collaborative program in Environmental Studies is offered through the School of the Environment (the School) at the University of Toronto. Graduate students admitted to a “home” department listed below are eligible to apply to the Environmental Studies collaborative program and pursue course work and research in environmental areas. The School currently has graduate students from across the disciplinary spectrum, including anthropology, social work, religious studies, law, management, geography, chemistry, biology and geology, to name a few. The School offers a unique and comprehensive program of graduate study. By utilizing the university’s  extensive library holdings and faculty resources, it offers one of North America’s most engaging and cross-disciplinary programs in the environment. One of the compelling strengths of the School’s program is the interdisciplinary environment in which teaching and research is conducted. For example, the core course, ENV 1001H "Environmental Decision Making" is taught by professors from both the social sciences and natural sciences. All students are required to take the core course from the School of the Environment which offers them an academic environment where they interact and collaborate with students from other disciplines who are pursuing similar work.  In this program, students are both able to specialize in an area of environmental research and gain exposure to a wide range of intellectual and methodological disciplines focused on environmental issues.

NOTE: NO ADDITIONAL FEES ARE REQUIRED FOR ENROLLMENT IN A COLLABORATIVE PROGRAM AT THE SCHOOL OF THE ENVIRONMENT.
