Across the globe environmental professions continue to undergo significant growth and increase in relevance. Our 30 credit totally online Master of Science in Environmental Practice degree prepares students to advance their career and to contribute positively to finding solutions for environmental problems. The master’s degree in Environmental Practice is available as a Master of Science (MSc) in Environmental Practice and as a Master of Arts (MA) in Environmental Practice.

This program is one of a suite of programs offered through the Canadian Centre for Environmental Education (CCEE) which is a result of a partnership between Royal Roads University and the Environmental Careers Organization of Canada (ECO Canada).

A unique opportunity for cross-border awareness and for a broader perspective is provided by access to courses offered by the University College, University of Denver, in their Master's degree program in Environmental Policy and Management.

Who It's For

The Master’s Degree in Environmental Practice is designed for those seeking a program that is professionally-focused and which has a content related to professional certification. The program is primarily designed for:
-Environmental practitioners heading towards professional certification or who are already professional certified as EP’s, but who may require updating to retain their active certification and/or career development
-Professionals aiming at a managerial level position and seeking advanced degrees
-International university graduates from environmental programs with relevant work experience
-Graduates from other CCEE programs
-College graduates who complete the degree completion option through CCEE
-University graduates who graduate from the CCEE Certificate program

Delivery Model

The Master of Arts/Master of Science in Environmental Practice program consists of 30 credits which, in most cases, will equate to 10 courses. The program is designed to be completed within three years. Each course is delivered entirely online through innovative use of web-based technologies. Participants will draw upon web resources as well as more traditional print media.

Designed for the working professional, the program content reflects the defined needs of the environmental profession and is closely related to supporting the National Occupational Standards established for professional certification as environmental practitioners in Canada.

A 15 credit core of courses is to be taken from an approved list of Royal Roads University courses. This requirement includes the option of either completing a Research Paper on a topic of specific interest to the student or a Practicum which enables the student to apply knowledge gained in the program to a specific, approved topic of relevance to their workplace or agency they may be associated with.

Students will enrol initially in one course (Developing a Sustainability Perspective) but may subsequently increase this load. Courses normally last for a period of 10 to 12 weeks, each course requiring an average time commitment of 10 to 20 hours per week. Having completed six or nine credits from the program core students will then proceed to courses in their optional concentration. The choice of elective courses will be determined by the students’ registration in either the MA or MSc programs. Courses in their concentration may be from Royal Roads University or from University College, the University of Denver. Having completed at least 20 credits, which will include the Research Methods course, students may embark upon either their Research Paper or the Practicum.

The University of British Columbia offers a Master of Arts in Children’s Literature (MACL) program, jointly offered by the Departments of English and Language and Literacy Education, the Creative Writing Program, and the School of Library, Archival & Information Studies. The Program Chair and administrative support of the MACL program are housed at the School of Library, Archival & Information Studies.

MACL Overview

The MACL program provides specialized education for graduate students in the study of children’s and young adult literature and media using a multi-disciplinary approach. It provides each student with the opportunity to study the creative writing and publishing of this literature, to examine models of sharing its rich heritage with the young, and also to facilitate the literary, social, historic, and psychological analyses of children’s literature as literature. This multi-disciplinary approach exposes students to many schools of literary criticism, educational theory, and professional and creative practice. It acquaints students with the broad literary canon of children’s literature across a spectrum of languages and cultures, and with a variety of critical perspectives and professional application. Across various disciplines, departments, and faculties, a broad range of courses provide disciplined, academic study of children’s and young adult literature and media.

The MACL Program is the only one of its kind in the world offered from such a broad, multidisciplinary perspective and the only Master’s program in children’s literature in Canada. The program is unique in that the two faculties and the four academic units jointly provide faculty, courses, thesis supervision and committee support to give the graduate academic study of children’s literature a perspective on the full life cycle of the literature – the creation of the literature (through Creative Writing), its critical analysis (through English) and pedagogical approaches to the literature in interaction with children in schools, homes and libraries (Language and Literacy Education; School of Library, Archival & Information Studies).

Faculty in these departments are authors of both acclaimed children’s books and scholarly guides to the literature. They serve on national and international children’s book juries, lead national research studies, and have received awards for scholarship, service, and teaching.

The University Library's collections in historical and contemporary children’s books and the critical study of children’s literature are considered among the strongest such collections in an academic library in Canada, including some 4,000 early and rare children’s books and some 50,000 modern children’s books. As well, the Library maintains a large collection of research materials on children’s literature, including histories, criticisms, bibliographies, catalogues, and biographies.

Students in the MACL Program have come from China, England, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Mexico, the United States, and from across Canada. The program provides specialized study of children’s books to those who are, or who intend to be, involved in teaching, school and public library services, writing, editing/publishing, theatre/film, storytelling, or affiliated fields.

The Master of Arts in Children’s Literature Program extends beyond its four departments and two faculties in a strong outreach to the community across and outside the University. Members of all departments involved in the program sit on the Steering Committee of the Vancouver Children’s Literature Roundtable which plans a series of annual events and conferences to bring award-winning authors, illustrators, editors and publishers such as Philip Pullman, Gregory Maguire, Shaun Tan, Katherine Paterson, and Lois Lowry to speak with students and Vancouver’s dynamic children’s literature community.

General Information

Occupational Therapy is a health-care profession dedicated to assisting individuals (and their families) to participate in and engage in the occupation of daily life. Occupational therapists provide specialized rehabilitation services to maintain, restore or improve the ability of children and adults to perform the occupations of daily life, which may be impaired as a result of illness, injury, congenital or acquired disabilities, or social disadvantage. Occupational therapists focus on adapting the environment or improving the person's skills, thereby improving overall health and quality of life. The MOT program is a two-year professional master's degree program. The curriculum follows five themes:
- Theory and Practice
- Health, Illness and Occupation
- Skills for Practice
- Evidence for Practice
- Professional Practice

What makes the program unique?

Five fieldwork placements of 5-7 weeks each are included in the program. The MOT program at UBC is currently the only Occupational Therapy program in Canada to offer designated seats for international students. In addition to the 48 domestic seats offered annually, the MOT program can accommodate up to 8 international students per year.

Program Details

The Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) program is a two-year professional master’s degree program, and the only occupational therapy degree program in British Columbia. Our program is fully accredited by the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists and graduates are eligible to write the national licensing exam upon graduation. The MOT program prepares graduates to be self-directed, lifelong learners, who consciously use theory, evidence and critical thinking skills to maintain, evaluate and improve their practice of occupational therapy.

As one of the smallest MOT programs in Canada, admitting 48 domestic students and 8 international students annually, our students enjoy small class sizes and more individual attention. Our teaching team believe not only in creating an environment that is open and exciting, but also recognizes that they are educating and working with their colleagues of tomorrow.

Why Choose a Career in Occupational Therapy?

If you enjoy enabling people to live a meaningful life, and want a career that is consistently challenging and involves life-long learning, you might have it in you to be an occupational therapist.
