Undergraduate Studies

Dalhousie's Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences is friendly and small enough that most students and faculty are on a first-name basis, yet has exceptional research and training capabilities. We emphasize learning through experiential learning in Nova Scotia and beyond, in addition to the classroom and lab.

Undergraduate students interested in studying earth sciences or environment science can choose from a wide range of options through the department.

In the Bachelor of Science programs, four years of study provide a solid grounding in earth or environmental science. Students in other degree programs can focus their elective classes on the environment to obtain a Minor in Earth Sciences, Environmental Science or Environmental Studies.
