B.A. Faculty Program in Environment

The B.A. Faculty Program has two components: Core and Domain. Students follow three steps in their degree program.

  1. Core: The Core consists of four introductory courses and one intermediate-level course where students are exposed to the different approaches, perspectives, and world views that will help them gain an understanding of the complexity and conflicts that underlie most environmental problems. Through the core program, students go beyond the confines of their individual views of environment.
  2. Domain: Domains provide a trans-disciplinary study of a particular theme or component of the environment. You can choose to follow one of three domains within the B.A. Faculty Program in Environment:
    • Ecological Determinants of Health in Society
    • Economics and the Earth's Environment
    • Environment and Development
  3. Senior Core and Research: In the two senior courses of the core, students will apply the general and specialized knowledge that they have gained in the program to the analysis of some specific, contemporary environmental problems.

To obtain a B.A. Faculty Program in Environment, students must:

  • register in a domain online, using Minerva;
  • satisfy the co- and/or prerequisites for the program (Calculus and a Basic Science course);
  • pass all courses counted towards the Faculty Program with a grade of C or higher;
  • confirm that their course selection satisfies the required components of the MSE core and their chosen domain, and that the complementary courses are approved courses in their chosen domain; and
  • fulfil all Faculty requirements as specified for the B.A. in the Arts, see Programs, Courses and University Regulations > Faculties & Schools > Faculty of Arts > Undergraduate > Faculty of Arts Degree Requirements, which include meeting the minimum credit requirement as specified in their letter of admission.
