Society has become more aware of the seriousness of the environmental problems we face. Yet, at the same time, people have realized that the solutions are not simple. To work towards environmental sustainability, people need to understand the scientific basis of environmental problems. They also need to have expertise in planning, policy, and other fields to deal with the social, economic, and cultural complexities that surround them.
Environmental Science at Queen’s takes an innovative approach to environmental education. The faculty are drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds – biology, chemistry, geography, geological sciences, economics, history, and policy studies, to name but a few – and they can offer students a truly multidisciplinary perspective on the challenging environmental problems facing humanity today.
Note: Students in this program are also eligible for the Queen’s Undergraduate Internship Program (QUIP) which provides 2nd or 3rd year students with a 12-16 month work experience. The internship normally occurs following the student’s third year of study, after which the student completes the final year of the honours degree. The internships are paid, professionally supervised, career-related positions offering students the opportunity to learn about current advances, practices, and technologies in business and industry.
