Our Master of Environmental Studies (MES) is offered by the Waterloo-Laurier Graduate Program in Geography. The collaboration between our universities makes us the third-largest graduate geography program in Canada.
You can benefit from the breadth and depth of the expertise of our faculty and your fellow graduate students in this rich intellectual environment. Our joint program allows you to explore a range of research interests, from the analysis of pressing social and environmental problems to theoretical questions of philosophical and technical importance.
The MES can be completed as a two-year degree with thesis, or via a major research paper option. As of September 2021, Laurier-registered students can also choose to complete the Environmental Data Analytics (EDA) field.
The MES program is ideal if you’re interested in environmental and resource management, or some aspects of human geography or environmental applications of geomatics. We also offer a Master of Arts in Geography and a Master of Science in Geography.
Faculty teaching in our MES program support a wide range of research interests, such as:
