What will I learn?

Trent University, in collaboration with Fleming College, offers a Joint Degree/Diploma in Ecological Restoration. The Trent-Fleming Ecological Restoration degree/diploma was created in response to growing global recognition of environmental disturbance and the science of remediation. Related to this is the need for a specialized set of skills and knowledge in the environmental sector. As an emerging field of expertise, ecological restoration is learned by direct engagement in the recovery of damaged and degraded ecosystems. The collaboration between Trent and Fleming involves the sharing of faculty, teaching, field study courses, applied projects, and resources over the four years of the program.

By working to ensure our world’s precious ecosystems are preserved, the vision of Ecological Restoration is that of a better tomorrow. Through a partnership with Fleming College, this unique degree program gives you the practical and theoretical knowledge needed to make your stand in the green revolution, helping restore our natural environment for present and future generations.
