Graduate Studies

The Environment, Sustainability and Society (ESS) program’s flexibility allows you to combine majors easily—so you’ll have a variety of options if you wish to continue your studies. You’ll be prepared for the challenges and demands of master’s studies in a number of areas, such as the following:

  • management, with a focus on corporate social responsibility (CSR)
  • environmental law, with a possible focus on marine law
  • architecture, with a focus on sustainable materials
  • or environmental science, with a focus on sustainable or organic farming practices

After completing a Master of Arts (MA) or a Master of Science (MSc), you might decide to work toward a PhD. No matter your eventual research interests, the interdisciplinary nature of ESS will give you a solid background in sustainability issues that will help you contribute not only to academia, but also the larger community—locally and globally.

Here are some programs and degrees you could pursue after completing the ESS program:

  • Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) or Juris Doctor (JD)
  • Master of Arts (MA)
  • Master of Community Design (MCD)
  • Master of Planning
  • Master of Informatics (MInf)
  • Master of Management (MMgmt)
  • Master of Journalism (MJ)
  • Master of Science (MSc)
