About Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at University of Alberta

Why study Earth and Atmospheric Sciences?

Earth and Atmospheric Sciences encompasses areas of study that examine the Earth: its structure, its evolution, and the atmosphere above it. This major (or minor) includes courses from Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Geophysics, and Paleontology to provide a multidisciplinary view of our planet.

Why take a Business minor with a Science major?

Pursuing a Business Minor within the BSc (General) degree is an excellent way for you to specialize in a scientific field while also gaining experience in business and management. Courses in Accounting, Finance, Marketing, and other business subjects will complement your science courses, give you a more well-rounded education, and prepare you for a variety of roles and careers.

The Business minor can only be taken as part of a BSc General degree.

The Business Minor is also available in the BSc Specialization in Computing Science.
