The School of the Environment is located in the Earth Sciences Centre on the University of Toronto's St. George Campus.
The new School of the Environment has grown from the former Centre for Environment, is located within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and serves as a focal point to help to direct students, faculty and the outside community to environmental initiatives across the three campuses of the university.
The School offers an undergraduate B.A. program in environmental studies and a B.Sc. program in environment and science, with exciting programs under development. In addition, collaborative programs are offered with departments and programs at U of T such as chemistry, geography, geology, human biology, physics, philosophy, psychology, and others.
At the graduate level, interdisciplinary collaborative programs in Environmental Studies, as well as in Environment and Health, are offered in partnership with twenty other units at the University.
In addition, distance education and certificate programs provide opportunities for professional development, as do leading-edge workshops and seminars in areas such as Environmental Finance and Carbon Finance.
