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 Biology program, students will examine the biology of ecosystems and environmental processes. They will gain a more complete understanding of the mechanisms through which environmental change has an impact on living creatures.
In addition to Environmental Biology, students interested in the environment can also consider our other excellent Specialist streams: Environmental Chemistry, Environmental Geoscience, and Environmental Physics.
New Health Sciences Stream
Pursuing a career as a doctor, nurse, physical therapist, dentist, physician assistant, pharmacist, or other health-care professional is a big goal. U of T Scarborough’s Health Sciences stream is designed to prepare you for career success and provide a competitive advantage.
Alongside your Bachelor of Science degree, you will earn a unique certificate* that will expand your knowledge and cultivate skills like leadership, communication, equity, and critical thinking—areas that are essential in health care.
The certificate can be paired with a co-op program which provides hands-on experience through paid co-op terms with some of the top hospitals, companies, and research institutes in the region, such as SickKids, CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health), University Health Network (UHN), and Baycrest.Bottom of Form
