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

Areas of Emphasis

All students must choose an area of emphasis consisting of a minimum of 2.50 credits in a particular topic area. The sequence of courses normally begins in third year. With the approval of the program counsellor, students may develop their own area of emphasis. All areas of emphasis must be approved by the program counsellor. Students should note that entry to certain areas of emphasis is restricted by the student's choice of major. Thus program approval should be gained before registering in courses to count towards their area of emphasis.

All areas of emphasis must be approved by the program counsellor and students should note that entry to certain areas of emphasis is restricted by the student's choice of major.
