Master of Science in Sustainability Management

The Master of Science in Sustainability Management (MScSM) degree is a professional masters’ degree for graduate students looking to advance their knowledge and experience in sustainability management. The degree was developed with the help of leading governmental organizations, businesses, non-profits, and research institutes. The degree welcomes students from many different academic disciplines and provides the opportunity for students to specialize within management or science, on top of the general foundation of sustainability management. For more information, you can visit: https://www.sgs.utoronto.ca/programs/sustainability-management/ and https://www.utm.utoronto.ca/mscsm/master-science-sustainability-management-mscsm.

Master of Environment & Sustainability

In the Master of Environment & Sustainability (MES) program, students will work closely with their individual thesis advisor and advisory committees for the duration of 12 months full-time. The advisory committee will consist of a primary supervisor and two other faculty members from at least two disciplines or departments to encourage transdisciplinary learning. This style of learning and exposure will prepare students for careers in the private and public sectors, as well as future studies at the doctoral level.

Collaborative Specializations in Environmental Studies and Environment and Health

The collaborative specializations provide graduate students already enrolled in degree programs the opportunity for further specialization. The specializations offered are within Environmental Studies and Environment and Health. These specializations allow students to complement their current degrees and enhance their unique interdisciplinary approach to their work.
