Additional Admission Requirements
Applicants are selected on the basis of a sound undergraduate academic record and strong language skills in English and/or French which allows them to secure an internship, which is a requirement of the program.

Those lacking a social science background may be required to take GEOG 355, Resource Analysis and Management, or a similar course.
Students admitted to the Diploma in Environmental Assessment (DEA) may subsequently apply, in a future admission cycle, to the Master of Environment (MEnv), if they have maintained a minimum CGPA of 3.30. A new application is required, with three letters of reference from current or recent professors. Courses taken in the Diploma with a grade of B+ or better may be transferred to the MEnv degree after admission. The Graduate Committee assesses the new applications with the other applications for the cycle.
