Current Undergraduate Courses

Fall/Winter Courses 2021-22


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 Calendar entry for the School of the Environment. However, it does not indicate which courses are currently being offered.

Academic Calendar


Look up which courses are being offered in each term, their schedule, their location, and the instructor. Using the “Additional course information” link. You can also view the course description, including whether a course has prerequisites, corequisites, and/or recommended courses. Note that you must enter School of the Environment or a specific course code and term to use this tool.

Course Timetables


Many courses offered by the School of the Environment have enrolment controls. For “PE” and “E” courses, the school gives priority to students in its own programs during both the first and second rounds of course enrolment. If you miss enrolling in a PE course for which you have priority access in the first round of course enrolments, or if you do not have priority for a PE or E course, please email the Undergraduate Student Advisor & Placement Coordinator.
