|School:||University of Victoria|
|Field of Study:||Environmental Studies
|Description:||The Environmental Studies Program offers students the opportunity to develop an interdisciplinary perspective on environmental issues of current interest. While many departments provide an in-depth preparation for examining such issues from specific viewpoints, Environmental Studies seeks to integrate knowledge and methodology from diverse areas such as the Sciences, Humanities, and Fine Arts. Environmental problems by nature are complex; historical, cultural and analytical perspectives are all necessary in seeking understanding and resolution of conflicts that arise.
The Environmental Studies Co-operative Education option provides students with an opportunity to combine their academic studies with four 4-month periods of paid employment in Environmental Studies-related positions in the public, private or non-profit sectors. Normally, the expected number of weeks per work term is 15 and the expected number of hours per week is 35. The minimum number of weeks per work term is 12 and the minimum number of hours per week is 35.
