Undergraduate Programs

Environmental Science

Faculty of Science

Environmental Science at Western is a discipline within the Faculty of Science and not a Department. Students completing Environmental Science modules will earn a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science. The Environmental Science programs are offered through the Centre for Environment and Sustainability.

NOTE: The programs and the courses in this area are administered by the Undergraduate Environmental Science Advisory Committee; the joint programs (e.g., double majors) with other disciplines are co-administered by the Committee and by the relevant Department.

Enrollment in Environmental Science programs

(NEW 2014) Diploma to Degree Pathways in Environmental Science

The Pathways program provides students with the opportunity to transfer credits earned in a college diploma program towards the completion of an Environmental Science degree at Western University. You can complete a degree in as little as 12 months (full time) and be one step closer to an exciting career in Environmental Science! The Pathways program was created for students that have graduated from specific Ontario Colleges with a Diploma from 3-year Environmental Technology or 2-year Environmental Technician programs and would like to continue their studies at Western University.
