Description:Environmental Science at U of T Scarborough encompasses the many diverse aspects of the environment, in the hope of leaving students with a holistic understanding of our surroundings. In the Environmental Geoscience program, students will examine the geographic and geological composition of the environment. They will learn about the physical forces that help form and change physical landscapes, and will also learn how human activity contributes to the transformation of natural spaces as well. They will integrate this focus into their broader understanding of the causes of environmental change and degradation. They will gain a more complete understanding of the mechanisms through which environmental change has an impact on living creatures including humans. In addition to Environmental Geoscience, students interested in the environment can also consider our other excellent Specialist streams: Environmental Biology, Environmental Chemistry, Environmental Physics and Environmental Science & Technology.

The overall purpose of the various programs in Environmental Science is to provide education and training which will produce highly qualified scientists with excellent field and laboratory experience, with a view to future employment in consulting, government, non-governmental organizations and research and teaching.
