Minor in Environmental Science

This Minor is available to students registered in a 120-credit hour Bachelor of Applied Computer Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Community Design, Bachelor of Computer Science, Bachelor of Informatics, Bachelor of Management, Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Science (Medical Sciences) program.

A BSc or BA 90-credit hour degree with Minor in Environmental Science is appropriate for students who want to study some Environmental Science but do not wish to complete the conventional four-year program. The degree is best suited for students who want a general science degree with some specialization in Environmental Science. A 90-credit hour degree program is not suitable for students who wish to pursue graduate studies. With additional study, the degree may be upgraded to a 120-credit hour Major or Honours degree at a later date.

The 90-credit hour BSc or BA in Environmental Science is usually the preferred option for students who wish to combine studies in Environmental Science with a degree in Engineering (see BSc/BEng or BA/BEng Concurrent Program).

Minor requirements: 

  • ENVS 1100.03: Foundations of Environmental Science and ENVS 1200.03: Current Environmental Challenges
  • A minimum of 18 credit hours in Environmental Science (ENVS) courses at the 2000 level or higher to a maximum of 36 credit hours. A maximum of 6 credit hours may be ENVS-equivalent.

*Please note that upper level Environmental Science (ENVS) courses have prerequisite requirements.
