Degree programs

The School of Earth and Ocean Sciences offers honours and major degrees. Given our interdisciplinary nature, we also have a number of joint degrees offered with other departments.

All degrees offer a mix of fundamental learning and practical laboratory and field work. Relevant work experience is offered in the Co-op Program and via work study and summer research assistant positions.

Our programs are described in the UVic Calendar. Below we list links to our programs in the calendar, and to any local notes we have. (Note the calendar descriptions always supercede local information.)
