What am I going to learn?
I will learn about:
- Environmental Science through the lenses of:
- Natural science: the fundamental physical science topics germane to implementing policy, examining impacts, and assessing solutions.
- Social science: impact assessment, policy, and qualitative and quantitative methods for examining environmental topics. This includes, data collection, analysis, and presentation as well as document and policy analysis.
- Humanities: environmental philosophy and history.
What experiences will I have?
- I will complete / participate in / gain practical experience in lab and field settings.
- I will use presentation skills that include, speaking, writing, mapping, etc.
- I will have the opportunity to partcipate in a Co-operative Education Option.
- This option allows students to participate in up to 5, four month paid (by the employer) work terms. Students register in a zero credit course which shows on the transcript as a work experience credit. It allows students to network with organizations/employers directly related to their academic program.
What can I do with this after I graduate?
- I can use this degree to develop or contribute to policies impacting the environment.
- I can work in physical environmental fields (field or lab setting), policy developing (municipal planning, provincial, and federal), after graduation.
What lens will I use to see the world?
- I will be a person knowledgeable in the broad field of environment.
- I will be interested in the scientific, social science, philosophical, and historical aspects of the environment.
