DescriptionThe Environmental Science program brings together the study of biology, chemistry, earth sciences and geography to enable its graduates to address complex and multidisciplinary environmental and conservation problems. Through lecture and seminar courses, hands-on laboratory work and field camps, students become proficient in topics such as water resource management, fish and wildlife ecology, ecological restoration, sustainable resource extraction, environmental monitoring, and environmental policy. In the upper years, students take courses in chosen areas of study and hone their skills in preparing research and thesis projects, working in teams and individually on current problems facing environmental science.

Concentrations are available in Biology, Chemistry and Earth Sciences. The Environmental Science honours program is accredited by ECO Canada (www.eco.ca), which aids the graduates of our program in following their own interests and paths to tackle a wide range of environmental issues.
