Environmental Studies/Science Programs

Environmental issues are multidisciplinary in nature. Investigating and resolving these issues requires the consideration of scientific, socio-economic, cultural, and political factors. To this end, the Division of Environmental Studies presents a number of interdisciplinary programs which include a common core of environmental studies courses plus courses required for an Honours degree in a cognate discipline: Biology, Earth Science, or Geography. In keeping with the interdisciplinary consideration, all programs have requirements from multiple disciplines and incorporate components from both natural sciences and social sciences/humanities.

Concurrent Education degree options are also available with Biology or Geography majors.

Students graduating from programs within the Division of Environmental Studies will be awarded either an Honours Bachelor of Environmental Studies (HBES) or an Honours Bachelor of Environmental Science (HBESc).

Minors in Environmental Studies or Environmental Science are also available to graduates of other programs.

The following Environmental Studies/Science program offerings are available:
Each program is marked with a TB, O or W designation to distinguish where each program is available.
