Environmental Studies

Effective environmental action and research require engagement – with the land and those who live on it. Conduct vital environmental research in partnership with international communities, First Nations, government agencies and more.

You’ll have access to a variety of research facilities across campus such as our Ethnoecology, Restoration and Conservation Ecology, and Visualization labs. UVic’s proximity to marine and alpine ecosystems, freshwater wetlands, rivers, lakes and the temperate rainforest makes us an ideal location for fieldwork.
