Program of Studies

Undergraduate Studies

This program is first and foremost the study of natural systems, of resource use and development, of the migration of contaminants in the environment and of their impact on the ecosystem as a whole. Its aim is to design management and restoration measures that will leave future generations a healthy natural heritage.

This program will give you a solid grounding in biology, chemistry, geology and thanks to a range of multidisciplinary courses, a keen understanding of the scientific and social aspects of environmental problems. Field and lab work will allow you to hone your critical and analytical skills.

Three streams of specialization

Turtle Conservation and biodiversity
This stream examines particularly human impacts on the precipitous decline of many species

Suggested course sequence - Co-op option
Glacier Global change
This stream examines particularly the consequences of human activities on global processes, such as climate

Suggested course sequence - Co-op option
Ecotoxicology Environmental geochemistry and ecotoxicology
This stream examines particularly contaminants and their effects on ecosystems.

Suggested course sequence - Co-op option

Graduate Studies

Because the environmental science program is interdisciplinary, you will be able to enter graduate programs in numerous fields, such as biology, geology, ecotoxicology, geography, and environmental chemistry. Program descriptions and degree requirements are available online.
