Environmental Studies Profile (300.EG)
Are you interested in environmental issues and their impact on society? If you are, the Social Science Environmental Studies Profile may be just for you!
The Environmental Studies Profile provides students with the opportunity to learn about the dynamic relationship between society and the environment and the environmental impact of resource development.
Students will also address and debate issues relating to environmentally sustainable growth in an increasingly global marketplace.
The profile blends theory and practice through a problem solving approach that encourages students to reflect on the call to action: “Think globally, act locally”.
The selection of courses is designed to give student access to university-level programs of environmental study. A broad spectrum of courses will be drawn from a variety of disciplines including the Social Science disciplines of Business Administration, Economics, Geography, History, Mathematics, Psychology and Sociology.
The Main Objectives of the Profile are to:
- Prepare students to pursue university studies in environmental issues from a social science perspective.
- Contribute to the awareness of environmental issues.
- Increase students’ awareness of their environmental footprint.
- Address environmental issues using a multidisciplinary approach.

Environmental Studies Students went on a field-trip to La Mer, one of Montreal's foremost seafood markets in February 2013. The students gathered data on the sustainability and status of the fish being sold. They interacted with the fish mongers in charge of ordering policies; discovering a number of difficulties and innovations in the sustainable seafood market.
