Undergraduate Programs

The Bieler School of Environment team teaching model is unusual in that it involves a sustained dialogue among two to three instructors representing a range of disciplines and perspectives throughout each of the seven core courses with each faculty present and engaged throughout the course. This format of classroom instruction assures that undergraduate students quickly recognize the multiple perspectives that surround each topic under discussion. It helps the students to see both conceptual and real‐world connections, and the intangibles of culture and philosophy that underlie disciplinary approaches. The students witness the process of interdisciplinary dialogue, discussion and debate. It empowers them as they realize that even the “experts” are learning from one another. It also helps students to see linkages among courses, and it stimulates active learning as the discussion and debate among instructors encourages students to share their ideas and questions.

A joint initiative of the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Science, and the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the Bieler School of Environment offers the following programs:

In addition, Honours programs are available as part of all of the Bachelors degree programs. Many of the Bieler School of Environment programs allow students to study exclusively on the Macdonald or Downtown campuses, or to take advantage of both.
