Why Go Here?

U of R's envrionmental programs envourage a diverse perspective, incorporating social science, natural science and the humanities. The university hosts partnerships with many of Saskatchewan's regional colleges. The UR Guarantee program helps students make the transition to university, providing academic workshops and career-development opportunities. 

 

Applied Learning

 Students will learn to look critically at environmental issues, develop practical skills and contribute to future change. Laboratory projects emphasize the use of professional techniques to solve practical problems. Field courses are offered at Bamfield Marine Science Centre in BC and the Kananaskis Field Station in Alberta. Environmental Studies students have several off-site requirements, such as the Wildlife Management Field Techniques course.

There are campus wide initiatives to collect technological waste, such as the Science Department's battery recycling program. The Centre for Sustainable Communities supports sustainability research projects and related initiatives on campus.
