UWaterloo launches no-cost climate change diploma for all graduate students

The University of Waterloo has marked Earth Day 2024 with the launch of an interdisciplinary graduate diploma in climate change that will be available at no additional cost to all of its graduate students. “Climate change is everyone’s business,” said UWaterloo Professor Daniel Scott. Master’s and doctoral students from any faculty across the university can earn the diploma by taking part in a climate fundamentals course, a climate specialization course, and four dedicated seminars and conferences. UWaterloo described the program as the first of its kind in Canada.
