Master's of Public Health: Environment Option
A number of departments and faculties throughout McGill University have joined with the McGill School of Environment (MSE) to provide an Environment Option as part of a variety of existing graduate degrees.
The Option provides students with an appreciation of the role of science in informed decision-making in the environment sector, and the influence that political, socioeconomic and ethical judgments have.
The Option also provides a forum whereby graduate students bring their disciplinary perspectives together and enrich each other's learning through structured courses, formal seminars and informal discussions and networking.
Students that have been admitted through their home department or faculty may apply for admission to the Option.
Option requirements are consistent across academic units. The Option is coordinated by the MSE, in partnership with participating academic units.
