Overview

Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science

Environmental Science provides a strong but diverse scientific foundation required to understand environmental issues from a multi-disciplinary perspective.

Environmental Science is an ideal discipline if you have both a strong interest in science and a concern for the environment. 

This interdisciplinary program is science-intensive and provides you with the foundation necessary to understand environmental issues from many different perspectives.

At Mount Allison, Environmental Science students study issues like:

  • the mechanics of weather and climate
  • the biological consequences of climate change
  • the impacts of environmental degradation
  • the effects of climate on the distribution of animals and plants
  • the impact of environmental change on freshwater systems

In upper years, you will compliment your major with an in-depth concentration of courses to provide you with a scientific specialty when you graduate.

Concentrations include:

  • aquatic environments
  • environmental chemistry
  • environmental modelling
  • environmental monitoring and management

You also have the opportunity to investigate issues you are passionate about through independent research (honours).

Environmental Science is available as:

  • BSc major (69 credits)
  • BSc honours (78 credits)
  • A minor in any degree (24 credits)

Experiential learning opportunities are offered in every degree.

Language pathway (conditional offer) is available

DUOLINGO English Test: 110

If you meet Mount Allison's academic requirements, but don't meet our English proficiency requirements, you may be offered conditional admission.

If you're offered conditional admission, you can enroll in one of our English pathway programs designed for students who need extra time and training to meet our English proficiency requirements, and who would like to benefit from additional transition time and academic preparation before full-time study.

There are two program options to help you meet the requirements, depending on your level of English:

  • English Summer Pathway Program (June-August)
    This program is offered during the summer. It includes classes in English and academic skills plus cultural trips and activities.
  • English Academic Bridging Program (EAB) (September-May)
    This program is offered during the academic year. You'll be enrolled as a full-time Mount Allison student. You'll take three regular Mount Allison courses each term and two EAB courses, in English and academic skills.

Once you successfully complete one of Mount Allison's English language programs, you will get unconditional admission to Mount Allison (if you meet our academic requirements). No additional TOEFL or IELTS tests will be required.
