Overview

Bachelor of Science - Environmental studies

Society has become more aware of the seriousness of environmental problems the world faces today and at the same time they have realized that solutions are not simple. 

No environmental issue can be treated in isolation from the society in which it exists. 

Therefore, to work in the environmental field, students need knowledge on the cause and magnitude of environmental problems, as well as expertise in planning, policy and other solutions within the complex socioeconomic-cultural world.

The Environmental Studies programs require a concentration in the Sciences or the Social Sciences and the Humanities. 

Top 5 Reasons to study Environmental Studies/Science at Queen's university:

  • Hands-on lab and fieldwork. Get dirty, see results.
  • Gain transferable skills that employers want, while learning how to prepare arguments and solve problems.
  • Help create the future world in which you want to live.
  • The best way to find solutions: combining both the arts and the sciences.
  • Research-focused courses in upper years contribute to projects happening across Canada and around the world.
