Program Description

Become an Earth Scientist. The Earth Sciences program uses Yukon’s dynamic environment as a laboratory to deliver the first two years of a B.Sc. degree in geoscience. At Yukon University, students have the advantage to complete introductory science courses in a personalized environment characterized by small sizes and dedicated instructors. Geology programming uses local landscapes and partnerships with industry to provide experiential learning opportunities that prepare students to meet the needs of employers and solve big-picture earth science problems facing society today. In partnership with Vancouver Island University (VIU)'s Department of Earth Science, students in the YukonU Earth Sciences program can transfer all credits from up to two years of study in Whitehorse directly towards completion of a B.Sc. in geoscience at VIU. This is a fantastic option for those wanting to start their geoscience education in the North and have the unique experience of studying geology in two amazing locations. This combined degree aligns with all professional geoscientist (P.Geo.) educational requirements.
