Program Information

School:University of Calgary
Faculty:Science
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op; Honours
Field of Study:Ecology
Description:

Ecologists ask questions such as: Why does New Brunswick have twice as many tree species as Alberta? Do wind turbines threaten the survival of bats? How does climate change impact fish populations?



Ecology examines the relationship that living organisms have with their environment. During the course of your studies, much of your learning will occur while actively working on problems in class, during tutorials, and in the field or laboratory. You also have the opportunity to complete a two-term research project under the guidance of a faculty member, and will gain hands-on experience conducting research at a field school held off our main campus.
