B.A. Faculty Program in Environment
The B.A. Faculty Program comprises two course components: core and concentration.
Core: In the core component, the four introductory courses and an intermediate-level course expose students to different interdisciplinary perspectives, approaches, and world views to help them understand the complexity and conflicts that underlie most environmental problems. In the two senior-level courses of the core component, students will apply the general and specialized knowledge acquired through the rest of their program, to the analysis of a selection of contemporary environmental problems. Students will be challenged by the core program to look beyond the confines of their individual views of environment.
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 concentration online, using Minerva;
- satisfy the co- and/or prerequisites for the program (Numeracy [e.g., 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 core and their chosen concentration, and that the complementary courses are approved courses in their chosen concentration; and
- fulfil all Faculty requirements as specified for the B.A. in Faculty of Arts > Undergraduate > Faculty Degree Requirements, which include meeting the minimum credit requirement as specified in their letter of admission.
Ecological Determinants of Health in Society Concentration
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) - Faculty Program Environment - Ecological Determinants of Health in Society (54 credits)
An understanding of the interface between human health and environment depends not only on an appreciation of the biological and ecological determinants of health, but equally on an appreciation of the role of social sciences in the design, implementation, and monitoring of interventions. Demographic patterns and urbanization, economic forces, ethics, indigenous...

Economics and the Earth’s Environment Concentration
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) - Faculty Program Environment - Economics and the Earth's Environment (54 credits)
Understanding Earth's geologic processes provides us with the knowledge to mitigate many of our society's environmental impacts due to resource extraction and waste disposal. This knowledge is not always enough, as economics often plays a controlling role in how we use and abuse our environment. ...

Environment and Development Concentration
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) - Faculty Program Environment - Environment and Development (54 credits)
The quest for sustainable paths to economic development requires scholars and practitioners to transcend the boundaries of traditional disciplines. This domain offers students sufficient depth and breadth of study to acquire a strong grasp of current theories, concepts, and approaches to environment and development. It prepares them for graduate study in...
