The Cultural, Social and Political Thought Program of University of Victoria, British Columbia embraces a full range of learning opportunities spanning natural and social sciences, humanities and traditional ecological knowledge. The faculty are engaged in active research programs with diverse themes—making an impact around the world and right here on campus.
Effective environmental action and research require engagement—with the land and those who live on it. Bring your studies into the world and make a real difference by collaborating with local and international communities, First Nations, government agencies, environmental and other non-governmental organizations and corporations.
Students in our interdisciplinary MSc, MA and PhD programs work closely with a supervising faculty member and advisory committee to complete a thesis—engaging in original research projects that transform knowledge into positive action.
Our graduate students have access to a wide variety of research facilities across campus. In addition to our modern Ethnoecology, Restoration and Conservation Ecology, and Visualization labs, UVic’s location on southern Vancouver Island provides us with easy access to marine and alpine ecosystems, freshwater wetlands, rivers, lakes and the temperate rainforest.
