Description: The Saint Mary’s University Environmental Science Program is a rigorous science undergraduate program using an interdisciplinary approach to learning. Our goal is to provide students with the academic preparation to allow them to contribute positively to an environmentally sound future. Environmental Science uses scientific ideas and methods to help shape and conserve our environment’s future. It blends the science behind environmental systems with the theory needed to manage and protect them.

Science coursework can cover a range of subjects, like Environmental Science, Biology, Chemistry, Geology and Geography, combined with environmental policy and management and monitoring approaches. You will have the flexibility to take elective courses from almost any department of the university, including Economics, Sociology, Political Science, Business and International Development Studies. Tailor your undergraduate Science degree to your interests. We offer a concentration, major, honours and minor in environmental science. If you’re majoring in arts or commerce, you may also combine a minor in environmental science.
