Environmental Science - Dalhousie University

Dalhousie combines the prestige of a big-name university with a hands-on, collaborative education. Our focus on academic innovation means we are committed to the continuous development of our programs and courses, how they are designed, and how we deliver them.

In 2018, Dalhousie celebrates its 200th anniversary and planning is well underway. As activities unfold, we’ll share them on our anniversary website (
The Environmental Science Program offers five different degree options to suit students’ needs. Each program offers a hands-on integrated approach to learning and the opportunity to undertake projects with real world significance.

Our classes cover a variety of topics related to the environmental challenges facing our world and our professors provide students with the tools to think critically and act thoughtfully in developing concrete solutions. Our small class sizes ensure that students receive the individual attention they need to be successful in their studies. Students are also encouraged to learn outside of the classroom as part of field studies classes, environmental science internships,
co-operative education and international exchanges.

Dalhousie's Environmental Science Program offers a broad range of degree options to suit diverse interests. Major in Environmental Science and make it your main academic focus. Combine it in a double major with Community Design or any Arts and Social Sciences program, such as International Development Studies. Opt for a minor in Environmental Studies if you're enrolled in Arts, Science or Computer Science -- or a concentration if you're taking Management.
