Undergraduate Studies

The School of Earth, Environment & Society (SGES) is committed to providing an innovative, stimulating and rewarding learning experience for all undergraduate students. A number of award-winning professors teach in our programs.

With our ongoing curriculum development process, we create new and exciting undergraduate programs that lead to either Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) or Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degrees. We have many field-based and hands-on learning opportunities.

The Earth and Environmental Sciences program fulfills the academic requirements to become a Professional Geoscientist through the Association of Professional Geoscientists Ontario (PGO).

The Minor in GIS (Geographic Information Systems) program fulfills the academic requirements to become a certified GIS Professional (GISP) through the GIS Certification Institute.

Information about both certifications is available below:
