Earth and Environmental Sciences Courses 2013-2014

The full list of course offerings for the 2013-2014 academic year is available here.

Earth and environmental scientists study the physical, chemical, and biological processes that shape our planet, and the impact of society on the environment.   Our undergraduate Environmental Science BSc is comprehensive, providing a broad background in all aspects of environmental science, and flexibility in upper years to allow students to prepare for a wide range of careers. We offer M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Earth Science, which are supported by a wide variety of high-quality research facilities. Located at the heart of the Great Lakes region, Windsor is at the centre of one of the most environmentally important regions in North America, where teaching and research in water and air quality, ecosystem health, and resource management is making a difference.
