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.
The student must complete at least 45 credit hours as follows:
- Biology 1001, 1002, 2600
- Earth Science 1000
- Mathematics 1000* (or 1080 and 1081), Statistics 2550 or equivalent
- One of Physics 1020* or 1050* and one of Physics 1021* or 1051*
- Environmental Science 4000
- Environmental Science 4950 (or 4951, see Requirements for Honours in Environmental Science (B.Sc.)
At least two of:
At least three of:
*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.
Students must complete at least 39 credit hours in one of the following streams:
- Biology 2010, 2122
- Chemistry 1200/1001 sequence or Chemistry 1011/1031 sequence or Chemistry 1050/1051 sequence, and one of Chemistry 2210 or Chemistry 2300 (or 2301) 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.
- Chemistry 1200/1001 sequence or Chemistry 1011/1031 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 (or 2301), Chemistry 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
