Earth and Environmental Sciences offers a variety of degree options to suit students’ needs. Each program offers a hands-on integrated approach to learning and the opportunity to undertake projects with real world significance.

Classes and professors

Our classes cover a variety of topics related to our world and our professors provide students with the tools to think critically and act thoughtfully in developing concrete solutions. Our small class sizes ensure that students receive the individual attention they need to be successful in their studies. Students are also encouraged to learn outside of the classroom as part of field studies classes, internships, co-operative education and international exchanges.

Get involved

Our student societies (the Environmental Science Program Student Society - EPSS, the Dawson Geology Society and the Dawson Geology Graduate Society) are very active in planning social events, fundraisers, campus activism, and trips to earth and environmental sciences conferences. Our students create an energetic community where diverse personalities and interests thrive. Whether you come from around the corner or around the globe, we will make you feel at home in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences.
