Bachelor of Science in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences – B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.) (Overview)

Students register in one major and at least one specialization. They may design their own program by choosing any major, except Agricultural Economics and Environment, and at least one of the specializations. By choosing two different specializations, students have the option of developing their own interdisciplinary interests. The multidisciplinary specialization is designed for those interested in broad training.

All the required and complementary courses for the major must be completed in full. Within each specialization, at least 18 credits must be unique, i.e., they only count for that specialization and do not overlap with either the major or a second specialization. At least 12 credits must be from 400-level courses or higher.

These programs are also available as honours programs for students after they have completed their U2 year if they meet the requirements. See individual programs for details.

Each specialization consists of 24 credits of courses (required and complementary) that provide a coherent package designed to prepare students for a future in a given discipline. Students will select at least one specialization. However, students wishing to broaden their training have the option of choosing to do two. Although the list of suggested specializations appears under each major in the programs section, students interested in other specializations should consult with their academic adviser.

The following are specializations for the major programs listed above in Agricultural Economics, Agro-Environmental Sciences, Environmental Biology, Global Food Security, and Life Sciences (Biological and Agricultural).
