Program Overview

Environmental change is one of the most pressing challenges of our time. Although governments are often presumed to be the most important players in addressing environmental change, citizens, non-government organizations and businesses all around the world are also taking on significant roles and making positive impact.

‘Environmental governance’ – the wide range of collaborative, and cross-institutional approaches used to address environmental change – is crucial to the planet and our shared future on it.

The Environmental Governance Major introduces students to opportunities and applications of environmental governance in Canada and beyond. Students will gain core competencies from geography and political science and build additional insight through courses from a range of social science and humanities disciplines.  Students in the program will receive: a solid foundation in the processes and mechanisms of environmental change and governance; an understanding of geographical, political and economic factors that shape environmental governance around the world;  exposure to innovative approaches and case studies; and the opportunity to tailor restricted elective selections towards one or more of Indigenous peoples and governance, environmental campaigns and communications, and environmental politics.  Graduates of the program will be well-suited for careers in the public sector, environmental non-government organizations and other non-profits, and the private sector.

Completion of required courses, and careful selection of electives will facilitate students completing a minor in Geography or Political Science, and/or completing the certificate in Indigenous Environmental Governance. Minors in other programs also may complement the Major in Environmental Governance.
