Program overview

The Graduate Diploma in Environmental Assessment looks at today’s most pressing environmental problems and provides training in data analysis, geographic information systems (GIS), and policy development. These skills will help you address the environmental problems facing future generations as rapid development and accelerated resource extraction have contributed to escalating ecological crises in our society. You will examine fields such as political ecology, science and technology, and critical geographies while maintaining a particular focus on Canadian and Indigenous affairs. Course materials are designed for students who want to pursue their studies at more advanced academic levels and for working professionals interested in the environmental field. Montreal is home to various international institutions such as the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity and Future Earth. Now more than ever, we need critical minds to apply rigorous environmental standards and to reflect on how to improve the environmental assessment process.
