|Environmental geoscientists apply their unique understanding of the Earth’s composition, structure and physical processes to protect the environment and predict geologic and hydrologic hazards. New geoscientists, trained in environmental disciplines, are required to meet environmental and resource management challenges. Current trends suggest that in North America, employment in the environmental geoscience disciplines will grow faster than the average for other occupations.
The Earth Sciences and Environmental Geoscience Co-op programs combine academic and work terms over a five-year period. Students spend two years in an academic setting, where they acquire the necessary background prior to taking the first work placement. Brock’s program is designed to comply with the educational requirements for licensing as a geoscientist-in-training, the licensing classification that leads to the P.Geo. designation, established by the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario.
