Environmental Biology

Program Summary

Recent environmental degradation such as surface water, pollution, climate change, depletion of resources, extinction of species and problems of waste disposal are all a result of the lack of understanding of environmental systems and processes.  The overall purpose of our Environmental Science programs are to provide education and training which will produce highly qualified scientists with excellent field and laboratory experience, with a view to future employment in consulting, government, non-governmental organizations and research and teaching. Graduates of these programs are eligible to receive their Environmental Professional in Training (EPt) designation, which is a developmental certification for emerging environmental professionals.

In the Environmental Biology program, students will examine the biology of ecosystems and environmental processes. They will gain a more complete understanding of the mechanisms through which environmental change has an impact on living creatures.

In addition to Environmental Biology, students interested in the environment can also consider our other excellent Specialist streams: Environmental Chemistry, Environmental Geoscience, and Environmental Physics.
