York University - Faculty of Environmental Studies

The Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University was founded in 1968 at a time of rising curiosity and concern about the environment. It was the first of its kind in North America and remains the largest. An interdisciplinary approach informs all its programs which include a Bachelor’s (BES), Master’s (MES) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Environmental Studies.

Our vision is to direct and combine the diverse energies, assets and activities of the Faculty of Environmental Studies to become the premier location for interdisciplinary, analytical and collaborative research, education and action on critical and changing environmental issues.

Our mandate is to provide unsurpassed opportunities for interdisciplinary teaching, learning and research about natural, built, social, cultural, and political-economic environments and the dynamic relationships between these. Dedicated to inspiring active-learners and engaged citizens, we are a community that respects and values insight, creativity, justice, and diversity and that works to promote significant social and environmental change toward the creation of a more equitable and sustainable world through imaginative and critical thought, and concerted action.
