Environmental Geoscience

environmental

Program Summary

Recent environmental degradation such as surface water, pollution, climate change, depletion of resources, extinction of species and problems of waste disposal are all a result of the lack of understanding of environmental systems and processes.  The overall purpose of our Environmental Science programs are to provide education and training which will produce highly qualified scientists with excellent field and laboratory experience, with a view to future employment in consulting, government, non-governmental organizations and research and teaching. Graduates of these programs are eligible to receive their Environmental Professional in Training (EPt) designation, which is a developmental certification for emerging environmental professionals.

In the Environmental Geoscience program, students will examine the geographic and geological composition of the environment. They will learn about the physical forces that help form and change physical landscapes, and will also learn how human activity contributes to the transformation of natural spaces as well. They will gain a more complete understanding of the mechanisms through which environmental change has an impact on living creatures including humans.

In addition to Environmental Geoscience, students interested in the environment can also consider our other excellent Specialist streams: Environmental Biology, Environmental Chemistry, and Environmental Physics.
