About

The PhD in Rural Studies is offered through our School of Environmental Design and Rural Development (SEDRD) at University of Guelph and provides opportunities for advanced studies and research on the integration of socio-cultural and bio-physical components of capacity development, design, or planning of landscape systems and rural communities.  

Overview

The Rural Studies doctorate at University of Guelph focuses on two fields: sustainable rural communities and sustainable landscape systems. Both fields contribute research to support the long-term well-being of rural communities through the integration of economic, social and environmental factors in their planning and activities. 

Local and global

  • Focus your research on local, Canadian or global rural communities and landscapes to strengthen your credibility in the areas you wish to focus your career.

Careers
