AN EXCITING OPPORTUNITY TO ADVANCE YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF EARTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES

EARTH SCIENCES

ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences offers M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in a variety of fields. At any one time we have 30-40 graduate students registered, with roughly equal numbers of M.Sc. and Ph.D. students. We typically admit about 10 new students a year. Excellent students admitted to an M.Sc. programme may be eligible to transfer to a Ph.D. programme after their first year of study. The Environmental Science Program prepares students for careers and further study in many fields. Visit the Faculty of Graduate Studies to explore Dalhousie’s many environment-related options at the graduate level. Also, the School for Resource and Environmental Studies in the Faculty of Management offers two graduate degrees: the Master of Environmental Studies (MES) and the Master of Resource and Environmental Management (MREM).
