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
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.
