Future studies

Dal’s Environmental Science program applies the research and principles from many disciplines to the study of issues involving our planet's environment. Environmental Science is an integral part of several programs—and as a result, you’ll graduate with a solid foundation in not just a knowledge of science, but also of the historical, ethical, sociological, and other factors surrounding environmental issues.

And because you can combine studies in Environmental Science with a number of other subject areas—such as International Development Studies, Environmental Design, Chemistry, or Earth Science—your options for further study are as varied as your interests might be.

Sam Halloran appreciates that the Environmental Science program is interdisciplinary, "like an environmental science program should be," she says. For one thing, she discovered an interest in philosophy. But Sam also says the program offers her the science background she needs to apply to veterinary college.
