Protecting the environment if part of our culture.
Thinking about the environment is part of our everyday activities at the University of Guelph. Students, faculty and staff actively work to make positive change on campus and off. The breadth of program options enables you to explore environmental topics from a variety of focuses. No matter the program you pick, you will learn about the environment from a 360° view. The environment and the issues it faces are not one-dimensional and your studies will reflect that. You will explore how people, places, things and animals interconnect, compete and co-exist.
