Master of arts

Grenfell's MA in environmental policy is one of only a handful 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 environmental policy field centers around the alternation of public policy and social institutions that influence the way we manage the environment and our natural resources. By researching scientific data and current legislation environmental policy makers create new laws and legal standards that will better serve shifting environmental demands.​​
