Environmental Science Program

Environmental Science is an undergraduate program that fosters critical thinking about how the world works and teaches students to use science to resolve environmental problems.

The Program offers both Major and Honours options leading to a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree. 

The strengths of the program include: 

The Program provides a broad, interdisciplinary education, with a solid foundation in the physical and biological sciences, anchored by core environmental science courses.

All students complete common core Environmental Science (EVSC) courses each year, which develop key knowledge and skills such as writing, critical thinking, collaboration and communication. 

  • Capstone Project

Students complete their program with an EVSC ‘capstone’ course in their final year, where they apply what they’ve learned during their studies to a collaborative group research project on a real-world environmental problem.

Concentrations offer course selections tailored to foster specialized skills and knowledge. Students choose the concentration that allows them to dig deeper into the area of environmental science that interests them most.

Enhances academic studies with related paid workplace experience, and is available to qualified students in the Faculty of Environment.
