The King's University located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, is a top private Christian university offering bachelor's degrees in the arts, humanities, music, social sciences, natural sciences and commerce/management, as well as an education after degree. The King's University is a member of Universities Canada and the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU).
The Environmental Studies (ENVS) program combines a major in ENVS with a concentration in one of three areas: Social Sciences (BA), the Humanities (BA), or the Natural Sciences (B.Sc.). These concentrations allow students to pair their Environmental Studies program with another discipline of interest, such as Biology, Business Administration, Chemistry, Computer Science, English, Philosophy, Politics and Economics, Psychology, Sociology, Social Sciences, or Theology. Interdisciplinary perspectives and approaches are adopted in all ENVS courses and projects.
Students are equipped with a knowledge of sustainability, including its natural, social, and economic dimensions. Through courses, internships and field experiences, the program introduces students to new ways of reducing and reversing harm to our planet while exploring the latest in environmentally friendly practices, theory, and technologies. These opportunities provide students with a host of practical skills, including mapping and aerial photo interpretation, Geographical Information System (GIS), Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), statistics, and public presentation and written communication skills.
The Environmental Studies program at The King’s University has received professional accreditation from Environmental Careers Organization (ECO) Canada since 2011. Notably, King’s was the first post-secondary institution in Canada to receive such accreditation for an environmental studies program that includes bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degrees.
