Prospective Students

""The School of Earth, Environment & Society is committed to providing an innovative, stimulating and rewarding learning experience for all undergraduate students. With our ongoing curriculum development process, we create exciting undergraduate programs that lead to either Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) or Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degrees.

We provide students with an educational experience to prepare you for future careers by integrating practical experiences and personal skills development into our courses. A number of award winning professors teach in our programs.

Our upper level courses are quite small, with fewer than 30 students in most fourth year courses. In the large introductory classes, students work part of the time in smaller tutorial groups ( fewer than 30 students) taught by graduate students or senior undergraduates. Tutorials meet weekly and provide students with an opportunity to work on course assignments and ask questions of their tutor in a smaller group setting.

Our School undergraduate advisor is available to answer your questions about courses, programs, career options and University services. For Undergraduate Level I admission information, please visit the Future Students website.
