Degree overview

Please consult the Graduate Calendar for the Master of Environmental Studies (MES) in Sustainability Management (SUSM) degree requirements:

Full-time students can expect to be enrolled for 6 terms (2 years). Part-time students must finish within 5 calendar years. Please see below for the suggested program schedule for full-time students.
