“This program enabled me to connect scientific theory and real-world environmental issues.”
BSc in Environmental Science
“I began my degree at another university in a program that focused on systems design engineering – which was excellent, but highly focused on technology. I needed to see sustainability in my education, so I transferred to Royal Roads University in my third year. RRU’s Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science program offered the perfect combination of applied science, policy and business issues.
I did not know what to expect from RRU, but I was optimistic. My expectations were exceeded, in particular, by the quality of education and instruction that I received. Uniting the practical aspects of environmental science and regulation with an interdisciplinary approach is so very pertinent to the workplace; I now have the ability to solidly grasp environmental problems from multiple perspectives.
RRU paved the way for the development of an interesting career. I developed a good foundation with which I could get a job, and it also served as a solid foundation for graduate work. The emphasis on entrepreneurship encouraged me to start a venture during graduate studies at McGill University, and that has led to founding the DE group of companies and working at the forefront of innovation in sustainability and business.”
