Okanagan College’s Diploma in Environmental Studies (ES Diploma) program offers students the opportunity to gain a comprehensive knowledge of the environment through courses from the sciences, social sciences and humanities. The interdisciplinary approach equips students with the critical and analytical skills to think through the many complex factors that influence our understanding of the environment. Studying in one of Canada’s most diverse ecosystems, students gain an understanding of the physical principles governing the environment and learn about the social and cultural aspects that influence human behaviour towards the environment.
The program, with four options to choose from, features a special block transfer agreement with the University of Northern British Columbia and Royal Roads University and has transferability to other universities as well. The four options include interdisciplinary environmental arts, environmental management, environmental science, and Geographic Information Science.
