B.A. Faculty Program in Environment

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.

Concentration: In addition to the core program, students choose a concentration, a transdisciplinary study of a particular theme or component of the environment. The requirements and complementary course sets vary between Concentrations. You can choose to follow one of three concentrations within the B.A. Faculty Program in Environment:
  • Ecological Determinants of Health in Society
  • Economics and the Earth's Environment
  • Environment and Development

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 > Degree Requirements for the Faculty of Arts, which include meeting the minimum credit requirement as specified in their letter of admission.
