Earth Sciences Course Offerings


Below are links you may find helpful in developing an undergraduate Earth Science programme at Dalhousie.

  • The Dalhousie Undergraduate Calendar, which includes courses, University and departmental degree requirements -- and much more. Earth Science - specific information is included.
  • The Timetable, which shows the scheduling and location of classes this semester and next.
  • DalOnline, where you can --among many other things-- inspect your transcript, change degree programmes (within limits), and check fees.
  • DARS (within DalOnline) -- the Dalhousie Degree Audit Registration System provides a useful tool to check which degree requirements you have met -- and which are remaining. Use DARS periodically during your undergraduate program at Dalhousie, and especially before registering for classes, to avoid surprises in your final year!  DARS is available to you through DalOnline.

The following courses will be offered in Earth sciences and geography.
