  • Objectives
    The program is structured so that you gain a thorough grounding in the sciences required to address environmental issues. In addition to courses in Environmental Science, the first and second years include courses in Biology, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, and Geography, as well as two courses in Mathematics and Statistics, and a course on environmental ethics. This combination provides a strong and solid foundation in the fundamentals of Environmental Science. In third and fourth year, there is considerable flexibility in your course selection to allow you to develop an area of special interest. You will learn to design research proposals, to work in teams on multidisciplinary problems, and to communicate your results effectively. Throughout the four years of the program, your studies will also include a sequence of courses in arts and social sciences that is relevant to the study of the environment. This sequence may include areas such as economics, social geography, communication, law, environmental policy, and international relations.
