Located in the heart of the Great Lakes Basin, the University of Windsor is situated at the centre of one of the most economically and environmentally significant regions in the World, where teaching and research in water, air, and land quality and management; ecosystem health and restoration; and resource management and sustainability are making a difference. 

Our comprehensive Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours Environmental Science and Bachelor of Environmental Studies (BES) undergraduate degree programs provide students with diverse classroom and experiential training and knowledge in the physical and living environment as well as human/environment interactions. The programs provide students the breadth and flexibility they require to pursue their own interests as well as to prepare for exciting careers. Through partnerships with the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research (GLIER), our programs are supported by world-class facilities engaged in research critical to the health and sustainability of the Great Lakes Basin. The programs also provide students with opportunties to pursue certificates, minors, and/or a Geography teachable, which can help you to further equip and differentiate yourself for future careers.
