Established in 1968, the Faculty of Environmental Studies (FES) at York University is the first Environmental Studies Faculty in North America. Offering 3 innovative programs at the Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral levels, our mandate is to provide unsurpassed opportunities for interdisciplinary teaching, learning and research about natural, built, social, cultural, and political-economic environments and the dynamic relationships between these. Dedicated to inspiring active-learners and engaged citizens, we are a community that respects and values insight, creativity, justice, and diversity and that works to promote significant social and environmental change toward the creation of a more equitable and sustainable world through imaginative and critical thought, and concerted action. Challenge what is. Imagine what could be. Transform the Future.
