Graduate Program

The Resources, Environment and Sustainability (RES) graduate program is home to a diverse and dynamic collective of interdisciplinary students focused on a wide range of problems and issues under the umbrella of the environment and sustainability.

RES has approximately one hundred current graduate students spread across three degree programs: Master of Arts (MA), Master of Science (MSc) or Doctoral of Philosophy (PhD). Over fifty percent of our core faculty are Canada Research Chairs and faculty mentoring has led to a high success rate of our students winning major fellowships and scholarships. There are multi-year funding packages offered for top applicants to the RES program. RES has over 400 alumni since the graduate program started in 1994. Our current students, alumni and faculty lead and serve on numerous international, national, non-governmental organizations (NGO) and regional bodies dedicated to protecting the environment and improving well-being.
