The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Practice at RRU is delivered entirely online to meet your flexible education needs, and leverages partnerships with universities and colleges across Canada to provide a wide upper-level elective offering.

Program Capstone

To demonstrate your learning and understanding of the core concepts studied throughout the program, you’ll complete a 75-hour practicum or a major research paper, both of which are developed with the guidance of your instructor and involve regular progress check-ins. Your practicum begins with a project proposal, developed between you, your workplace supervisor and your instructor, and in addition to maintaining a diary to document your experience, you’ll be required to schedule and plan all parts of your project. The research paper requires a literature review and appropriate research, progress reports and a draft for instructor approval prior to submitting your finalized work.
