Major in Environment - B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.) and B.Sc.

Major in Environment - B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.) and B.Sc.

Students in the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.) program and students in the Faculty of Science B.Sc. program can register in the Major in Environment.

The Major comprises two course components: Core and Concentration.

  1. Core: In the Core, 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, 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.
  2. Concentration: In addition to the Core, 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. B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.) and B.Sc. students can choose one of the following concentrations:
    • Biodiversity and Conservation
    • Ecological Determinants of Health (Population and Cellular stream options)
    • Environmetrics
    • Food Production and Environment
    • Land Surface Processes and Environmental Change
    • Renewable Resource Management
    • Water Environments and Ecosystems (Biological and Physical stream options)
    B.Sc. students in the Faculty of Science may also choose one of the following concentrations:
    • Atmospheric Environment and Air Quality
    • Earth Sciences and Economics
  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 Major in Environment, students must:

  • register in a concentration online using Minerva;
  • pass all courses counted toward the Major 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 by the faculty in which they are registered: for the B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.), refer to Faculty of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences > Undergraduate > About the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, including School of Human Nutrition (Undergraduate) > Faculty Information and Regulations; for the B.Sc., see Faculty of Science > Undergraduate > Faculty Degree Requirements. This includes meeting the minimum credit requirement as specified in their letter of admission.
