Land Surface Processes and Environmental Change (Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences)


The atmosphere-lithosphere interface, known as the land surface, is a key component of the environmental system and profoundly influences our social and economic activities. This domain will introduce you to the interacting physical and biogeochemical processes that fashion land surface habitats and determine their biological productivity and response to anthropogenic or natural environmental changes.

Through an appropriate selection of courses, this program will prepare you for graduate training in emerging research areas such as earth system sciences, environmental hydrology, and landscape ecology.

This domain is only available to students in the Environment major.


Students who pursue an environmental science degree have many options when it comes to jobs and may work in a variety of settings. 

Some examples include:  

  • Climate Change Analyst
  • Environmental Program Manager
  • Water Resources Planner
  • Conservation Officer
  • Land Use Planner

Possible minors
