Overview

Honours Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Governance - Optional Co-op

Environmental governance refers to the processes through which societies make decisions that affect the environment. Governments have long been dominant players in this context. However, in Canada and around the world, the ability of governments alone to address environmental problems is being called into question. As a result, contemporary environmental governance increasingly involves citizens, non-government organizations, and businesses.

The Major in Environmental Governance introduces students to the challenges of environmental governance. Through completing courses from the disciplines of geography, political science, agricultural economics, and economics, students will receive: a solid foundation in the processes and mechanisms of environmental governance in Canada and elsewhere; an understanding of geographical, political, and economic factors that shape governance in Canada and around the world; and exposure to innovative approaches to environmental governance that address persistent and emerging societal concerns. Students completing the major will have the skills and experiences needed to participate effectively in environmental governance in a variety of settings. Hence, they will find careers in the public sector, in environmental non-government organizations, and, increasingly, in the private sector.

Completion of required courses, and careful selection from among optional courses, will facilitate students completing a minor in Geography, Political Science, or Economics. Minors in other programs also may complement the Major in Environmental Governance.

Co-op available in F21, students starting in F20 can apply to transfer into the program in their second year.
