Algoma U’s four-year Honours Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science program is an interdisciplinary program that integrates core courses in the disciplines of biology, chemistry, and geography. By integrating multiple disciplines, we are able to address some of the most profound and complex concerns faced by modern society.
Being located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, students will have ample opportunity to work in the various natural ecosystems which encircle the city. Sault Ste. Marie is at a crossroads between nature and industry, providing endless opportunities for students to examine first-hand the relationship between people and the environment. Within the city limits are large tracts of forests and fields, fast-moving rivers, swamps, bogs, and St. Mary’s River. Not many cities can boast that kind of habitat diversity, or the biological diversity associated with it, making Algoma U and Sault Ste. Marie the ideal location to study Environmental Science.
Honours Thesis course
Students work with a supervisor to research, plan, and carry out a scientific project with the goal of publishing their findings. The research will be placed on display in the Essar Convergence Centre. Students may elect to take the non-thesis option, instead of participating in a second internship.
Learn outside of the classroom
Students will benefit from countless hands-on learning experiences. Aside from coursework, students will conduct field research within the Algoma district.
Graduates of the program have the knowledge and skills needed to fill the current shortage of skilled workers in the environmental sector, including:
- research assistant
- environmental consultant
- environmental education
- project manager
- environmental sales
- environmental risk management
- coordinator for environmental initiatives
- environmental technician
