The interdisciplinary program in Environmental Earth Sciences is a joint program of the departments of Geography and Planning, Geological Sciences, and Soil Science. It explores the relationships, both modern and ancient, among the solid Earth, the atmosphere, the oceans, and the biosphere; its primary emphasis is on the physical sciences, rather than the biological sciences. An important part of the program is training in field and laboratory methods of investigating and interpreting near-surface environments, and the effects of human activities upon them. On completion of the program, students receive either the B.Sc. Four-year or the B.Sc. Honours. The Environmental Earth Sciences curriculum will permit graduates of the program to meet the requirements for professional registration as geoscientists-in-training in the Province of Saskatchewan through the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS).

Note: Students declaring their Major in Environmental Earth Sciences are encouraged to complete the following suite of courses within the first 60 credit units of their programs: CHEM 112; EVSC 220; GEOG 120, 222, 225, 235, 290; GEOL 121; MATH 110, 116; PHYSICS 115; STAT 245 or PLSC 214 (36 credit units).
