Bachelor of Science in Environmental Practice Royal Roads University




Course info


The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Practice at Royal Roads University goes beyond the basics to build the skills, knowledge and next-level insight that you need for a constructive science- or technology-focused environmental career.

To fully explore and implement sustainable decision-making for the environment, you need a balance of relevant interdisciplinary knowledge and real-world application. This approach is exercised throughout the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Practice curriculum, and especially in the final phase of the program where you select to complete either a 75-hour practicum or major research paper.

With this degree, you acquire more than a practical, workplace-ready environmental skillset grounded in critical thinking and theory – this program and the BA in Environmental Practice are the only undergraduate degrees in Canada delivered in partnership with ECO Canada.
