Environmental Studies at York University
Environmental Studies, simply put, is the study of your environment. But what exactly do we mean when we refer to the
environment? To answer this question, all you have to do is look at yourself and around you — at your body, to the left, to
the right, ahead of you, behind you, up and down. Our environment is made up of our bodies and everything that
surrounds us — whether right in front of us or thousands of kilometers away.
We offer you the opportunity to study a subject relevant to your life while providing you with the skills needed to make a
difference in the world. We teach you how to look beyond the surface of issues and to draw conclusions based on sound
research. You will analyze the natural, political, urban, social and cultural environments that make up our modern and
complex societies and learn how issues interact and interrelate — the ultimate social science!
Welcome to the first Faculty of Environmental Studies in Canada. For over 40 years, we have been internationally
recognized for providing our students with valuable knowledge and skills needed to thrive in an evolving world and
