|Field of Study:||Environmental Science
|Description:||The Bachelor of Arts and Science in Climate and Environment* serves students who seek an interdisciplinary education with a unique strength in both Environment and Climate. The field of Environment focuses on the physical and chemical composition, nature, and the societal relationship we maintain with our physical setting, while the field of Climate focuses on how the Earth’s energy balance affects our environment.
This concentration will be of interest to students who want to learn about how the climate works, how we measure climate, and issues surrounding climate. Courses in this concentration will help students develop fundamental scientific methodology in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, as well the social and political dynamics that inform societal responses to climate. This will help them appreciate the complex behaviour of Earth's atmosphere and climate system, as well as its effects.
