Does the institution offer at least one sustainability-focused major, degree program, or the equivalent for graduate students?:
Yes

The name of the sustainability-focused, graduate-level degree program (1st program):
Masters of Art or Science and PhD in Environmental Studies

A brief description of the graduate degree program (1st program):

The School of Environmental Studies has three interdisciplinary focus areas in ecological restoration, ethnoecology and political ecology, and embraces a full range of learning opportunities spanning natural and social sciences, humanities and traditional ecological knowledge. Programs are research based and therefore all students are supervised by a faculty member along with an advisory committee. Admission is tied directly to a faculty member who agrees to work with the student and act as the major adviser.

Located on southern Vancouver Island, there is easy access to marine, freshwater wetlands, rivers, lakes, upland Garry Oak, temperate rainforest and alpine ecosystems. There is also opportunity for collaboration with many First Nations, government agencies, environmental and other non-governmental organizations and corporations.

The School of Environmental Studies creates UVic's major sustainability programs. It offers interdisciplinary programs, with courses that examine systemic aspects of environmental issues and explore solutions that cut across the boundaries of traditional disciplines. We also recognize that many aspects of local, national and international environmental problems are inextricably connected to our dominant cultural values, and attendant political, social, economic and educational institutions. The graduate programs offered are research based and require the completion of an independent research project to graduate.
