BSc in Environmental and Conservation Sciences

General Information

The BSc in Environmental and Conservation Sciences program is for students interested in the natural world, its management, conservation and ecological perspectives. 

With appropriate course selection, graduates may qualify for Professional Agrologist or Professional Biologist designations. Students are advised to select their courses in consultation with an academic advisor early in their program to be sure they can meet these professional organization requirements.

Program details are available on the Faculty website.


All students in the BSc in Environmental and Conservation Sciences must successfully complete the courses in a common program core , and a capstone course .  

The program includes a field school (REN R 299) that provides training in technical aspects of environmental sciences. REN R 299 is normally taken in the spring between second and third years. REN R 299 must be taken prior to the fourth year of study, to ensure that students are able to apply the skills learned in the last year of their program.
