¿Qué aprenderé?

Navigating the complex issues involved is a challenge that requires a broad range of skills and perspectives pertaining to earth’s environmental system: its biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and geosphere. This type of training is brought together at the University of New Brunswick through our interdisciplinary programs in the environmental sciences.

Six streams to choose from

Undergraduate programs in the environmental sciences encompass knowledge gleaned from all science disciplines and commence with a common core similar to that of other students in the Faculty of Science. This introduction provides the student with a theoretical and experiential grounding in scientific principles. As the program progresses, students advance to consider environmental issues from broader ethical, economic and social viewpoints while developing their own scientific interests with a more specific collection of required and elective advanced courses.

These advanced science courses are tailored for students to graduate with a concentration (i.e., stream) in one of six areas. All streams are supported by a strong science foundation and an examination of the environment from different perspectives.

Biological responses to the environment

Living organisms are constantly interacting with their environment and changing in response to it. At relatively small time-scales, individuals do this biochemically, physiologically and behaviorally; at large time-scales, populations do this by adapting. At a time when our planet is being transformed by human activities, it is important to understand how living entities can or cannot respond to such changes.

Chemical environmental perspectives

Understanding the properties and reactivity of molecules, in addition to their identification and quantification, is at the heart of understanding and mitigating human impact on the environment. This knowledge is essential for monitoring industry, investigating and solving environmental problems, and creating paths for human activity that are less harmful to the environment. This stream focuses on training in chemistry.


The amount of data collected for sampling and monitoring the environment is on the rise, as many different monitoring technologies are developed and used. Consequently, there is a need for trained personnel to develop and use mathematical, statistical and other quantitative methods in the environmental sciences, environmental engineering, and environmental monitoring and protection. This stream focuses on in-depth mathematical and statistical training.

Responsible resource recovery

For society to continue to function, extraction of our gradually depleting geologic resources will remain a necessity (e.g., aggregate, fertilizer, metal, petroleum and water for agriculture, communications, construction, lubricants, plastics, renewable energy, and transport). The next generation of scientists must not only carefully manage these dwindling resources, but also explore and extract them with much greater awareness and consideration of both the risk of environmental degradation and pollution, and the subsequent management of waste material.

Water-Earth interaction

Across our environment, water has the capacity to dissolve solids from the earth’s surface and substrate, transport the solutes, and precipitate new materials. The solutes can be essential nutrients for life, or toxic contaminants.

Sun-Earth interaction

Among the many challenges that humanity faces at this beginning of the 21st century are concerns arising from climate change and various impacts on societies resulting from the interaction of Earth with the Sun.

Requerimiento de entrada

Para estudiantes de Estados Unidos

High school students applying to undergraduate programs at the University of New Brunswick. USA: General Certificate of Secondary Education with grades of A or B. Applicants who have completed Grade 12 of an accredited high school program must satisfy UNB's minimum program-specific requirements (minimum B average). Criteria such as academic standing, rank in class and SAT scores may also be used to determine a candidates admissibility. ACT scores are not required. International students require the following English language proficiency minimum scores for direct entry into most academic programs: IELTS 6.5, TOEFL iBT 85, CAEL 60, or Pearson Vue Test 59.

Para estudiantes internacionales

Students must complete high school for admission to the University of New Brunswick. They must complete six specific high school courses, according to their program of choice. UNB takes the overall average of the high school grades achieved in these six courses to calculate the student’s "minimum admission average", which is used to determine admissibility.

The University of New Brunswick accepts qualified applicants from all countries. Entry requirements may vary from country to country.

International students require the following English language proficiency minimum scores for direct entry into most academic programs: IELTS 6.5, TOEFL iBT 85, CAEL 60, or Pearson Vue Test 59.
