Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Environmental Science (BSc)

 milton | Also available in waterloo

Note: This program is pending approvals.

Learn to identify the scope of environmental challenges and assess solutions based on fundamental principles of how organisms perform in their interactions with their biological, geochemical and physical environment.

Our Environmental Science program unites ideas from biology, chemistry and geography to understand how physical and chemical processes affect rock, soil, air and water, which then affect the distribution, abundance and performance of living organisms.

Program Highlights

  • Small class and lab sizes, which gives you more opportunity to work directly with your professors.
  • An interdisciplinary scope gives you a diverse set of courses.
  • You’ll gain hands-on experience linking ideas from the classroom with critical-thinking skills that will enable you to identify and solve environmental problems.
  • Study in a true “STEAM” environment that aims to create interdisciplinary skills in science and arts to increase your employability.
