High Impact Learning Experiences

​Global Perspective of Science courses

Each year, the School of the Environment offers several undergraduate study abroad courses. This year, the courses offered went to Costa Rica and Iceland. These courses are offered in the intersession or summer session.

Field courses

Our undergraduate programs include the opportunity to take field courses - where the environment is your classroom.

Field Trips

Quite a few of our undergraduate courses run field trips as part of the in-class experience. Local sites such as McGregor Quarry, Point Pelee, the Lou Romano wastewater treatment plant and Chatham-Kent wind turbine fields are examples of destinations you may travel during your ungrad.


The Faculty of Science facilitates interships for any interested science students using their extensive network of employers. Interships are typically taken for 1 semester, may count for course credit and may be paid or unpaid.

Job opportunities in the School of the Environment

Occasionally, professors in the department are looking to hire undergraduate students to work in their research labs. These paid positions provide undergraduate students with real-world lab experience and sometimes translate into an undergraduate thesis or graduate degree project.
