Environmental Science 319 ENSC319
Field Course in Marine, Freshwater and Terrestrial Ecosystems 3 (0-1-5-0)

This course provides students with an opportunity to develop practical skills in environmental monitoring, assessment, and management practices as they apply to global environmental issues. Projects focus on environmental quality, impact assessment, habitat structure, biodiversity and sustainability. This course is designed to be taken during the year 'summer or Christmas break' following the second or third year of studies. Field exercises are conducted at an area outside of Alberta, with the destination to be decided each year.

Note: The destination will be announced before the beginning of Fall semester, and interested students should apply to the Department Chair. Tuition and all fees (normally non-refundable) must be paid one month before departing on the course, including an additional fee charged to cover the costs of transportation, accommodation and other course-related activities. This fee will depend on the destination, since the course will be run only on a cost-recovery basis.

Prerequisites: BES 208 or Biology 208 or Environmental Science 208 and 2nd year standing required
