    Course Summary

    Would you like to prepare yourself for an active, outdoorsy career which builds upon your passion for developing healthy, mutual co-relationships with the organisms and ecosystems of nature? If so, a BSc in Ecology could be the perfect next step. It will be a great opportunity to learn how to encourage peaceful coexistence between species, prevent or mitigate harm to endangered species, and promote general eco-friendliness and energy conservation in the face of environmental change.

    This program can be taken only as a full 4 year BSc.

    Laurentian University’s Ecology BSc program offers state of the art learning facilities, and is located on 750 acres of beautiful, ecologically diverse land in inland Ontario. There may be no better place to learn about the positive and negative interactions between living organisms and the environment around them. You’ll study the environment on many levels, from that of global systems, local ecosystems, communities, populations and individual organisms.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
