The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management from the Royal Roads University is an interdisciplinary degree-completion program that provides you with the skills, knowledge and tools to identify and assess the qualitative, scientific and technical components of environmental issues.


The students will acquire and apply your skills and knowledge in the fields of environmental ecology, atmospheric and ocean sciences, geomorphology, soil sciences, hydrology and remediation. Through a sustainability perspective, you will examine and address global environmental issues by integrating your skills with management and decision-making tools.

Encompassing years three and four of an undergraduate degree, the Environmental Management programme from the Royal Roads University is a two-year blended program involving on-campus residencies and online learning so that you may complete your degree while continuing to work.

Who It’s For

Those who are interested in doing something about current industry and government actions regarding the environment, who want to become leaders in changing people's actions toward the environment, and who have, or want to have, the ability to understand the full breadth of environmental issues, including their social and economic implications. For those currently in management or striving to become managers and want to pursue further education while continuing to work full time. Those who have completed two years (the equivalent of 60 credits with a minimum 24 credits at a 2nd year level) of post-secondary studies.

Delivery Model

The delivery format of the BSc in Environmental Management is similar to our MA in Environment and Management. There are three, three-week residencies combined with courses delivered at distance. The program takes two years to complete.

In the first year, students focus on acquiring the necessary skills, knowledge and tools to assist them in identifying and assessing the quantitative scientific and technical components of environmental issues. Students gain and integrate skills and knowledge in the fields of environmental ecology, atmospheric and ocean sciences, and water and wastewater management. Students also begin an exploration of sustainability from theory into practice that will continue as an underlying theme throughout the balance of the program.

In the second year, students acquire integrated skills and knowledge in the field of environmental chemistry, geomorphology, soil sciences, environmental hydrology and remediation. Students also begin to integrate these skills in addressing environmental issues from an interdisciplinary perspective.
