Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Program Options

The thesis option requires you to complete eight units of credit: four courses and the thesis (four credits). The thesis option is normally completed in six terms (two years).

The research paper option requires you to complete eight units of credit: six courses and the research paper (two credits). The research paper option is normally completed in three terms (one year).

Either option is available both full- and part-time students.

Environmental Data Analytics Field

Laurier-registered students can choose to complete the Environmental Data Analytics (EDA) field over one year: two semesters of course work (six units of credit) and one semester of research placement (two credits).

The new EDA field meets labour market demands for people trained in geospatial and data handling related to environmental change and related management, regulatory, planning and policy decision-making. The degree focuses on environmental analytics knowledge generation and dissemination applied to the private, public and non-profit sectors.
