8.9.1 Course Requirements for Honours in Environmental Science (B.Sc.)
  1. Students must meet the General Regulations for Grenfell Campus Bachelor of Science degree.

  2. Students must complete 75 credit hours as follows:

    1. the Environmental Science Core requirements as outlined under Bachelor of Science with Major in Environmental Science.

    2. the course requirements of a specific stream as outlined under Bachelor of Science with Major in Environmental Science.

  3. Students must complete 3 additional credit hours in courses at the 4000 level. These courses normally will be drawn from the student's honours stream as follows:

    1. For the Honours Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science (Biology), a further course chosen from: Environmental Science 4069, 4131, 4133, 4240, 4479

    2. For the Honours Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science (Chemistry), a further course chosen from: Environmental Science 4069, 4131, 4240, 4249, 4479

    Students, in close consultation with a faculty advisor and the agreement of the Chair of the Program, may select fourth-year honours requirement courses in place of those required above, so long as such selections are consistent with the Major to which they are added. Such honours selections will be subject to approval by the Academic Studies committee.

  4. Honours graduates of the Environmental Science Program will have also completed a two-semester research project consisting of a research proposal and literature review course (Environmental Science 4951) and a research project course (Environmental Science 4959).

  5. In order to be considered for graduation with an Honours degree, the candidate must satisfy the regulations regarding Academic Standing as specified under Honours Degrees.

    Courses used to calculate the academic standing as outlined under Honours Degrees include all required Environmental Science and Chemistry courses for the Chemistry stream students and all required Environmental Science and Biology courses for the Biology stream students, excluding, in both cases, 1000 level courses.

    More specifically, courses normally used for calculations would be:

8.9.2 Honours Dissertation for Honours in Environmental Science (B.Sc.)
