There are a variety of ways to combine a major in Earth Sciences with many other academic programs. It’s no more difficult than doing a regular Earth Sciences degree, and provides you with a formidable combination of two skill sets to take into the job market.
Combinations to consider:
Bachelor of Science
Double major or combined honours: As part of a double major or combined honours program, Earth Sciences can be combined with any other Faculty of Arts or Science major or honours subjects. If it is combined with an Arts subject, a larger number of credits must be taken in Earth Sciences.
Minors: There are also a number of minor programs that can be combined with Earth Sciences through the Bachelor of Science program. These are: Business, Canadian Studies, Community Design, Computer Science, Environmental Studies, Film Studies, Food Science, Journalism Studies, Law and Society, and Management.
Bachelor of Engineering
Bachelor of Science students can complete a Bachelor of Engineering degree concurrently with their science program. Students in this program complete the equivalent of a three-year Bachelor of Science degree in Earth Sciences and a Bachelor of Engineering in a period of five to six calendar years, depending on whether or not a co-op program is selected for Engineering.
Bachelor of Arts
In the Bachelor of Arts program, Earth Sciences can be combined with most of the Arts or Science major or honours subjects.
