The School is the centre for graduate environmental scholarship and research at Dalhousie. It is a leading institution in environmental management and capacity building in Canada and abroad.

At the core of the School are interdisciplinary teaching and research programs emphasizing rigorous inquiry and ethical practice as the foundation of responsible environmental and resource management. Efforts are devoted to addressing causes rather than symptoms and learning to anticipate and adapt to change. The School offers two Masters programs. One is a two-year Master of Environmental Studies (MES) degree which includes course work and a thesis. The other is a 16-month Master of Resource and Environmental Management (MREM) degree involving course work and an internship practicum. A combined 28-month MLIS/MREM program is also available.

In addition to working partnerships within the Faculty of Management, SRES draws on an extensive network of cross-appointed Dalhousie faculty and adjunct appointments from other universities, government departments and NGOs. SRES contributes to many programs and institutes on the Dalhousie campuses. The School, through its many teaching, research and community service initiatives, strengthens the University‚Äôs capacity in resource and environmental studies.
