I chose this program because I wanted to redirect my career in an environmental field after working in human health research for several years. The program provided a supportive and flexible learning environment, so I was able to continue working part-time as I completed the coursework. Mentorship I found in the GPE department helped me gain proficiency in the areas where I wanted to focus. Small classrooms, passionate professors, and hands-on learning experiences provided me with both practical and theoretical knowledge for a career in EIA. I felt prepared for my internship which I did abroad through the IYIP program. I am currently working at Biodiversité conseil Inc., a company reputed for pursuing ambitious, sustainable development projects. I also continue research related to my internship report about the consideration of ecological connectivity in EIA with an international working group. I would not have been able to get to where I am now in my career without the program - I am very grateful to the wonderful staff, students, and community at Concordia for creating an environment that fosters personal and professional growth. The M.Env program is an excellent choice for everyone seeking to pursue work and research in the field of EIA.
