Traditional elements of this PhD program include the development of a research dissertation in a field of interest in the environmental sciences, the completion and approval of a candidacy examination, and a final oral defence. Unique to this program are three environmentally oriented courses that provide students with expertise in environmental communication strategies:

  • Communication Strategies
  • Current Issues in Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
  • Practical Issues Surrounding Environmental Management

Current UPEI students should refer to Student Planning in myUPEI and the UPEI Academic Calendar governing their entry year, and speak to an academic advisor about course requirements. The course structure presented for this program is a recommended, unofficial progression for prospective students.

Students will be required to take three (3) mandatory graduate-level courses in Environmental sciences in addition to one (1) elective course in their disciplinary area. Each student is expected to complete these courses within the first 18 months of the degree.
