The MScSM program provides the training for our graduates to act outside the traditional disciplinary black boxes; integrate knowledge from management, social, and natural sciences to address sustainability issues; and make leading contributions and lasting advances in sustainability management. The program is unique among science and management graduate programs by providing a strong foundation in sustainability management while offering an opportunity to specialize in a management or science concentration. The program is designed for students from diverse backgrounds such as management science, social science, natural science and engineering. The program was developed in consultation with leaders and future employers in business, non-profit, research, and government organizations. The MScSM degree is for individuals who want to pursue management careers in sustainability-related divisions and organizations.

Does the institution offer one or more graduate-level sustainability-focused minors, concentrations or certificates?:
Yes

Name of the graduate-level sustainability-focused minor, concentration or certificate:
Environmental Management

A brief description of the graduate minor, concentration or certificate:

The Environmental Management programs (Specialist , Major , Minor , Sustainability Minor , Environmental Law and Policy Minor and Combined MScSM ) focus on environment, society, and public policy. The cornerstone second-year course ENV201H5 Environmental and Resource Management) provides students with an introduction to the political and socioeconomic framework of environmental management. Students then have the opportunity to develop specialized skills in resource management, environmental assessment, and the social, economic, and policy aspects of environmental change.

One possible pathway through Environmental Management would rely mainly on Social Science course selections (e.g., Environmental Politics in Canada, Sociology of the Environment, The Environment: Perspectives from Economics and Ecology). An alternative pathway would rely more heavily on Humanities course selections (e.g., Environmental Ethics, Canadian Environmental History, Literature and the Environment). Experiential learning and research opportunities are important to all of the Environmental Management programs.
