About the Department
Our department hosts dynamic and diverse groups of researchers in a wide variety of subjects dealing with the nature, origin and history of the Earth, earth resources, and the evolution of the environment at the Earth's surface.
We offer undergraduate programs leading to Bachelor of Science (BSc) degrees (Honours with specialization in Geology and in Geology-Physics), as well as Master of Science (MSc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in Earth Sciences.
Undergraduate programs are structured to allow students to obtain professional accreditations in many provinces and to enjoy careers in the minerals, energy or environmental sectors.
Together with the Department of Biology, we also offer a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Environmental Science.
