The Department of Natural Resource Sciences offers research-based graduate programs leading to Master of Science (M.Sc.) and Doctorate (Ph.D.) degrees. We offer graduate studies in the following areas:

In several of these areas of research, we offer Program Options in cooperation with the McGill School of Environment and with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (Neotropical Environment). These options typically involve extra course work at the graduate level.

A non-thesis Master’s program is available in Environmental Assessment program.
