University of Guelph 2001-2002 Undergraduate Calendar

X--Degree Programs, Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences [B.Sc.(Env.)]

Program Information

Objectives of the Program

The Environmental Sciences program is designed to provide a strong interdisciplinary grounding in specific environmental sciences including the socioeconomic context in which environmental issues are resolved.

There is an emphasis on management and decision-making skills for the application of scientific knowledge to environmental problems, and the evaluation of appropriate environmental policies. A practical problem solving perspective is central to the program, and this is often done in the context of group work.

Substantial emphasis is placed on communication skills, including the development of both good writing ability and oral communication ability. This is emphasized particularly in the Environmental Sciences core courses, starting in first year, and running through to fourth year. Students in the final years of their program will be expected to take part in more intensive communication skill development.

Graduates will seek employment in a range of fields, from government agencies to private industry and research.

Academic Counselling

General information on the degree program is available from the Program Counsellor, Faculty of Environmental Sciences. Advising for each major is available through the assigned departmental advisor responsible for the major. Students are encouraged to seek the advice of the departmental advisors when choosing restricted electives and planning course selections.

Degree

The degree granted for the successful completion of the program will be the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences - B.Sc.(Env.).

Continuation of Study

Students are advised to consult the regulations for Continuation of Study in Section VIII, Undergraduate Degree Regulations of this Calendar.

Conditions for Graduation

In order to qualify for graduation from the B.Sc.(Env.) program, the student must have completed successfully the stated course requirements for the program.

Environmental Sciences (Co-op)

Office of the Associate Dean, Faculty of Environmental Sciences.

A 4-year Honours Program in Environmental Sciences is offered as a Co-operative Education Program. This option is offered within the B.Sc. (Env.) degree and is available to all majors. The program requirements are the same as those listed for the regular B.Sc. (Env.) program, by the Co-operative Education Program and as outlined in the Continuation of Study policy (Section VIII--Undergraduate Degree Regulations & Procedures).

Two streams are available (A and B) with entry to Stream A directly from high school and entry to Stream B after completion of semester 2. In Stream A, 3 co-op work terms (COOP*1000, COOP*2000, COOP*3000) are required. In Stream B, an optional 4th co-op work term (COOP*4000) is available. COOP*1100 must be completed during the semester preceding COOP*1000 (ie. in semester 2 in Stream A and semester 4 in Stream B).

The recommended work/study semester sequence for Streams A and B are given below. Work / Study Semesters:

Since some of the program requirements in the degree program (core, major, area of emphasis) are not offered each semester, careful planning and program consultation with the Environmental Co-op Advisor is essential.
