Specialized Environmental Degrees

In partnership with Royal Roads University, we have developed three comprehensive post-secondary programs that deliver specialized education and training specific to the environmental sector. These programs help further distinguish students as future leaders in the environmental and sustainability sectors:

Graduate Certificate in Science and Policy of Climate Change

This graduate certificate will augment your current undergraduate degree. It is designed for practitioners who want to move into the expanding field of climate science and policy.

Bachelors Degree in Environmental Practice

The Royal Roads Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Practice can be awarded as either a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science, depending on your focus. The online program provides students the opportunity to take up to 9 electives and choose between a 75-hour Practicum or Research paper.

Master’s Degree in Environmental Practice

If you already hold an undergraduate degree and want to advance into a leadership or management role, you can earn either a Master of Arts or Master of Science in Environmental Practice without putting your career on hold, through Royal Road’s online master’s programs.
