In September 2014, SENS began offering the Undergraduate Certificate of Proficiency in Sustainability - the first of its kind at a Canadian university. Coordinated through SENS, the certificate enriches a student's current degree program and helps them stand out from the crowd following graduation. By providing significant exposure to sustainability-related concepts and practices, students gain an understanding of how to integrate human-environmental systems within our current reality and how to critically evaluate sustainability efforts. Students choose their elective courses from one of three areas of focus: natural resources and sustainability, community and sustainability or food systems and sustainability.
The certificate is outlined in the course calendar here.
For more information about the program and how to enrol contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, three colleges at the U of S offer undergraduate environmental degree programs. To find out more visit the Undergraduate Environmental Degree Programs website.
