The Environment

In the Environment stream students develop an awareness of the relationship between business, society and the environment. This stream builds upon required courses offered by York University's groundbreaking Environmental studies program (such as Perspectives in Environmental Studies and Foundations in Environment and Culture) allowing students a choice in their senior years courses such as Environmental Law, Environmental Policy or Resource Management. Students will engage with a variety of perspectives on the environment and will learn about cutting edge issues in the field.

The honours options in the Environment stream offer students unique opportunities to perform research in the community and to study economic organizations that are attempting to incorporate environmental principles into their business functions.

This stream is recommended for those interested in future careers in environmental policy, environmental consulting, and graduate work in Environmental Studies or Geography. It is also forms a good basis for future education in Environmental Law or Resource Management.
