You'll need to combine studies in a traditional discipline with your Environmental Studies program to obtain a degree notation that includes Environmental Studies.

Major programs

You can take the Major in Environmental Studies together with a major in another department (a Double Major).

You can also take a major with an honours program or a major in another faculty. These programs lead to either a BA or BSc degree.

Learn more in the Academic Calendar: Major Program.

General programs

We also offer a general program leading to a BA.

If you complete the requirements for the general program together with a major or honours program in another department or faculty, you can obtain a Minor in Environmental Studies.

Learn more in the Academic Calendar: General and Minor Programs.

If you're considering a Major, Minor or General Program in Environmental Studies, you'll need to take the introductory course, ES 200 (Introduction to Environmental Studies), unless you have already completed ES 300A.

You should declare your intention to enrol in Environmental Studies by the end of your second year of study.

Many eligible courses in Environmental Studies are 300 and 400 level with prerequisites. You should plan early to incorporate these prerequisites into your schedule and be aware of the minimum grade requirement for the programs: a B- in ES 200.

When choosing electives, we encourage you to include courses in languages and in areas other than those in which you're majoring. For instance, if you're majoring in sciences, you should choose an elective from the Faculty of Social Sciences or Humanities.

We offer a Diploma in the Restoration of Natural Systems in co-operation with the Division of Continuing Studies. Read more.
