Research topics (updated April 2019)
The Master of Environmental Studies (MES) in Sustainability Management is a full-time program with six courses and a thesis. Pursued on a year-round basis, the degree is typically completed in 5 to 6 terms (2-years).
- Domestics master’s receive approximately $27,800 across the two years of study, based on contributions by the student made to undergraduate teaching and professor research.
- A very limited number of international scholarship opportunities. Details are provided here: https://uwaterloo.ca/environment/graduate/funding-and-opportunities.
The available PhD position in Sustainability Management is regrettably limited to domestic (Canadian or PR) students. The doctoral degree description is provided here. The PhD typically takes four years, and requires two courses, a comprehensive examination, professional development seminars and a research thesis.
- Domestic PhD students are guaranteed funding, typically under the Dean’s Doctoral Initiative that provides $100,000 over four years. SSHRC and NSERC applications are expected. Details here: https://uwaterloo.ca/environment/graduate/funding-and-opportunities
