The Environment Programs at UTM are interdisciplinary, building upon a core of ENV courses and utilizing courses and expertise from a wide range of disciplines in Science, Social Science, and Humanities. The programs are administered by the U of T Mississauga Geography, Geomatics and Environment Department, which advises students and coordinates participating departments, faculty, and programs.
The curriculum stresses the integrative nature of the study of the environment.
