School of Environmental & Natural Resource SciencesOur School is different. Our focus is the environment, so you won't spend much time in a lecture hall.
It's active, outdoor, hands-on learning, with field camps and projects that will challenge you to put your new skills into practice. Most programs offer work placements, and some offer paid co-ops, internships, or international exchanges. Our small class sizes are taught by renowned faculty who are committed to your success.
More of our grads are working in the environmental and natural resources fields than any other college in Canada. Our school is different – are you?
