The environment seems under threat where ever we look. Climate change, pollution, habitat destruction, extinction of species, the effect of extraction industries … the list is endless.
This specialised honours program provides a way into the various professional and scientific career paths involved in managing and sustaining the environment. Students choose either the life sciences stream or the physical sciences stream. In the former courses in biology are combined with those in geography whereas in the latter courses in earth and atmospheric science are combined.
Further graduate study is possible in either the geography, earth and atmospheric science or biology graduate programs.
