BET: Environmental Studies

Are you’re looking for a program that:

  • challenges you?
  • involves you in real world environmental opportunities throughout your academic career?
  • offers the personalized attention and nurturing environment you won’t find in larger school?
  • has a foundation based on the past and present, but with an eye to the future?
  • is based on creating engineering solutions to real world problems?

Then a BET in Environmental Studies may be the perfect fit for you. In this program students progress through an understanding of the fundamental sciences (Biology, Chemistry & Geology) underlying environmental study, passing through to an examination of key environmental subjects (Air Pollution, Environmental Engineering & Hydrogeology). The program then culminates with an environmental policy and planning focus in the final year.

This program is available in a three year format, consisting of 105 credits over 3 years. *Year 3 is available entirely via distance education format.

Admission Requirements: 

High School Graduates: Five grade 12 advanced or academic courses including English and Mathematics, and two other sciences (Physics is recommended); with an overall average of at least 65%.

Diploma/Degree Graduates: Applicants with appropriately accredited community college diplomas, a university science degree in environmental science or in a closely related program may be considered for admission. As well, CBU has articulation agreements with many colleges across Canada which provide for immediate advanced standing in the BET (Environmental Studies) program for graduates of eligible technology diplomas from these institutions who may then complete the program via distance format.

Partially completed diploma/degree: Admission considerations and transfer credit assessments are available on an individual basis in consultation with the CBU Registrar’s Office. Feel free to inquire about the possibilities for advancing your career.
