Current Undergraduate Courses

Fall/Winter Courses 2024-25

All of the School’s courses and their prerequisites, corequisites, and recommended preparation courses, as well as the breadth category for the courses, are described in the Arts & Science Academic Calendar entry for the School of the Environment. However, it does not indicate which courses are currently being offered. The Arts & Science Academic Calendar has all the requirements, rules and regulations for completing your degree, programs and courses.

In Timetable Builder you can look up which courses are being offered in each term, their schedule, their building location*, and the instructor (*room numbers are only available on ACORN for the courses in which you are enrolled). Using the “Additional course information” link, you can also view the course description, including whether a course has prerequisites, corequisites, and/or recommended courses in the Arts & Science Academic Calendar. Note that you must enter the Faculty of Arts & Science, the academic term, and either School of the Environment or a specific course code to use Timetable Builder. 

Many courses offered by the School of the Environment have enrolment controls. For courses with an “E” enrolment control, all students, including those enrolled in School programs, must request enrolment, by emailing the Undergraduate Student Advisor.

ENV440H1 Professional Experience Course

The ENV440H1 Professional Experience Course is now offered in both the summer and the fall. In order to take the course, students must submit an Intake Form for the summer or the fall. Details about the course and the process for obtaining a 70-80 hour academic internship are described at the beginning of the Intake Form


ENV440H1 Professional Experience Course Intake Form

Students interested in the Summer cohort must submit the Summer intake form. The deadline was February 26, 2024.

Students interested in the Fall cohort must submit the Fall intake form. The deadline is June 14, 2024.

It is important for students to carefully consider their commitment to this course prior to registering, given we communicate our match results to our partners, who then begin preparations for your onboarding, orientation, team integration, and project launch or work-start.
