The study of the quaternary (the last two million years of the earth's history) involves a broad group of disciplines including biology, climatology, archaeology and surficial geology. This minor program provides a quaternary studies background through course work in various disciplines offered through departments in the Faculties of Arts and Science. Students considering entry should obtain standing in the prerequisites for the courses required in this minor.
