McGill’s Integrated Water Resources Management Program (www.mcgill.ca/iwrm) is a one-year, 45-credit non-thesis M.Sc. program.  Its curriculum includes lectured courses, the internship and project (central features of this program), and the Research Visits course which allows students to meet professionals from industry, government agencies, and NGO’s.

We believe this program may be very interesting for your students to consider as it is provides a unique opportunity to study the biophysical, environmental, legal, institutional, and socio-economic aspects of water use and management in an integrated context. Funding for students registered in the program is available through teaching and research assistantships as well certain funded internship positions.

Candidates may have an undergraduate degree from a wide variety of related areas, including: geography, international development studies, sociology, anthropology, mathematics, environmental studies, biology, natural resources management, and engineering, amongst others. Interested candidates can visit our web page for information on applying to the MSc IWRM Program.
