Overview

Bachelor of Arts and Science in Environment

Help contribute to a future we can all be proud of with a Bachelor of Arts and Science in Environment (BASE). 

CBU’s first fully interdisciplinary degree, the BASE program, takes advantage of the natural resources available among the breathtaking scenery on Cape Breton Island. 

The BASE program reflects a university-wide commitment to teaching and research in environment and sustainability and is enriched by Indigenous perspectives.

With dedicated professors and unprecedented research opportunities, the breadth of the BASE program ensures graduates have wide-ranging skill sets. 

When you enrol in BASE, you are immersed in three streams simultaneously: a science concentration, an arts/social science concentration, and a core set of environment-themed courses specially designed for this program.

Each year, the themes of these courses may change to reflect the world-class faculty’s specialties or timely environmental issues. 

Respect for, and inclusion of, Indigenous knowledge is a guiding principle of BASE. 

All students will have the opportunity to take Mi’kmaq Studies courses toward their degree, preparing them to be active and responsible agents in the development of sustainable environmental practices.
