Bachelor of Science (General and Honours) degrees are available in Environmental Science, General Science and Psychology.

Minors are available in Environmental Science, Mathematics, Science.

An articulation agreement has been established with the College of the North Atlantic for those students who have completed the three-year Environmental Technology diploma program and who wish to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree (Major in Environmental Science).

10.1 Major in Environmental Science

Program Chair: Dr. M. Krishnapillai

The Major consists of an Environmental Science Core which provides a broad appreciation of the interrelationships inherent in any study of the environment and one of two possible streams which provide the depth and focus for the degree program.

  1. Environmental Science Core

    The student must complete at least 45 credit hours as follows:

    1. At least two of:

      • Anthropology 3083
      • Economics 2010
      • Environmental Studies 3000
      • Environmental Studies 4000
      • Philosophy 2561
      • Political Science 3550
      • Political Science 3731
      • Religious Studies 3880
    2. At least three of:

      • Environmental Science 2261
      • Environmental Science 2360
      • Environmental Science 2370
      • Environmental Science 2371
      • Environmental Science 2430
      • Environmental Science 2450
      • Environmental Science 3072
      • Environmental Science 3470
      • Environmental Studies 2000 **

    *It is strongly recommended that students considering the Chemistry stream of the Environmental Science program complete these courses in their first year.

    **This course is strongly recommended for the Biology Stream of the Environmental Science program.

  2. Environmental Science Streams

    Students must complete at least 39 credit hours in one of the following streams:

    1. Biology stream

      • Biology 2010, 2122
      • Chemistry 1200/1001 sequence or Chemistry 1011/1031 sequence or Chemistry 1050/1051 sequence, and one of Chemistry 2210 or 2300 or 2440 or 2400/2401 sequence, or Chemistry 1010/1011 sequence and Chemistry 2440
      • ENVS 3110, 3130 3131, 4132, 4140 (or equivalent field course)
      • Two of Envs 4069, 4131, 4133, 4240, 4479
      • one additional laboratory (Science/Statistics/GIS) course beyond the first year level excluding Environmental Science Core courses. A course used to fulfill a stream requirement cannot also be used as a Group c. course in the Environmental Science Core.
    2. Chemistry stream

      • Chemistry 1200/1001 sequence or Chemistry 1011/1031 sequence or Chemistry 1050/1051 sequence. It is strongly recommended that students complete one of these sequences of Chemistry courses in their first year.
      • Chemistry 2210, 2300 and 2400/2401 or equivalent
      • Environmental Science 2261, 3210, 3211, 3260, 3261, 4230
      • Two of Environmental Science 4069, 4131, 4240, 4249, 4479
      • Mathematics 1001 which should be completed in the first year of studies
