UQAM revitalizes environmental sciences bachelor, certificate programs


The Université du Québec à Montréal has revitalized two of its environmental sciences degree programs. UQAM’s Faculty of Science recently announced that its baccalauréat en sciences naturelles appliquées à l’environnement (BSNAE) and its certificat en sciences de l’environnement have both been redesigned to offer more multidisciplinary courses and flexible pathways for learning. Notably, the certificate program will now offer some courses at the bachelor’s level, thereby making it easier for learners to transition into a bachelor’s degree later. UQAM Professor David Widory said that this redesign highlights the strengths of the two programs, particularly their interdisciplinarity and emphasis on practical training.
