|Description:||Environmental Science is an exciting and relatively new field which explores environmental principles and the interaction of humans and the environment. Concordia University College of Alberta is a leader in education in this non-traditional discipline; faculty members in our program are noted for their contributions to the private and public sector.
As a student in our Environmental Science program you will investigate the effect of human activities on the environment and ways by which we all can become environmentally responsible citizens. Our program takes a multi-disciplinary approach, demanding a strong background in the natural sciences and a working knowledge of social sciences, economics, and political science. You will study toxicology, risk assessment, environmental management, related health topics, and the ethics involved in environmental issues. The strength of our program lies in the balance between theory and practical learning.
