Why Environmental Policy @ Memorial?
Memorial University's MA in Environmental Policy program is one of few programs of its type in Canada. It is a rigorous, interdisciplinary study of environmental policy in terms of its theory, application, methodology, and approaches with reference to central contemporary debates. It is also an applied program that equips students with practical skills in the field making links to the labour market through a required internship program. Interdisciplinary study in the Environmental Policy program is encouraged by the University. Applicants with an interdisciplinary background or whose background combines two or more fields of study (e.g., political science, public policy, environmental studies, geography, resource management, environmental science, or public administration) would be an excellent fit for this program.
The Grenfell Campus, located in Corner Brook, NL, is renowned for its environmental programming in environmental studies, environmental science, sustainable resource management, and tourism which allows students to draw upon a wide range of faculty with diverse environmental interests. With approximately 1,300 students, the Grenfell Campus is an ideal size to allow students to work closely with faculty in pursuit of their studies.
