Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours in Environmental Geoscience

Increasingly, humans are inhabiting areas of both natural and human-made geological hazards. In order to prepare for and manage potential hazards, we need to know more about the natural geological processes that affect them. New generations will need to know more about the earth to make the best decisions for humans’ well-being.

Geology emphasizes solid earth science and applications in mineral and oil and gas resources. It can be divided into two areas of concentrations:

  • mineral exploration
  • oil and gas exploration

Environmental geoscience focuses on applications in environmental studies.

Our programs have a well-rounded curriculum that promotes a solid understanding of the fundamentals of the earth sciences across all sub-disciplines, combined with extensive hands-on training, field-oriented class exercises, regular use of the Saskatchewan Geological Survey’s subsurface core repository, and two intensive field school courses. Our programs have an established reputation for training highly qualified graduates.

Graduates are eligible to apply for membership in the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) which follows the recommendations of the Canadian Geoscience Standards Council that sets the professional curriculum across Canada.

Our graduates are sought after by employers and have a high rate of employment.
