General Information


The four-year Bachelor of Science (Environmental and Conservation Sciences—Bilingual) degree is a collaborative effort between Faculté Saint-Jean and the Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences. This program, unique in Canada, offers students the opportunity to obtain a fully bilingual Science degree in Environmental and Conservation Sciences in Canada’s two official languages. Students will complete half of their coursework in each of the two Faculties. The objectives of the program are:

  1. to respond to a need expressed by students and the community for a bilingual Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental and Conservation Sciences in Alberta;
  2. to prepare bilingual (French-English) graduates who will:
    1. evaluate effects of human land use on plant, soil, water and human resources;
    2. assess and facilitate conservation, reclamation and remediation measures for natural and damaged ecosystems;
    3. understand and communicate in both official languages the role that social, economic and political forces play in natural resource management;
  3. to promote the University of Alberta as a leading University offering a unique degree in North America;
  4. to attract francophone and francophile students from Canada and other countries.

The program is set up so that students will take their coursework in Year 1 in French at Faculté Saint-Jean (except for ANGL or equivalent, which can be taken either at Faculté Saint-Jean or in the Faculty of Arts). In Year 2, students will take required core courses in science in the Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences, as well as French language courses and free electives at Faculté Saint-Jean. All qualified Year 2 students will then be promoted to Year 3 provided a minimum GPA of 2.0 has been achieved, and a minimum of ★54 applicable to the program has been successfully completed. They will take required core courses and courses in their area of specialization and continue to take some free electives at Faculté Saint-Jean. Some science courses (core and electives) may also be taken at Faculté Saint-Jean in Years 2, 3, and 4 [see Le programme , The program and BSc in Environmental and Conservation Sciences—Bilingual/ Baccalauréat ès sciences (sciences de l'environment et de la conservation— bilingue) ].

Students who have not completed any postsecondary studies will complete ★54 at Faculté Saint-Jean, not counting ★6 for ANGL or equivalent, and ★60 in the Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences. (see English Language Proficiency for Admission ).

Students who have completed one year postsecondary studies will complete a minimum of ★45 at Faculté Saint-Jean and a minimum of ★45 in the Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences (see English Language Proficiency for Admission ).

Students who have completed two or more years of postsecondary studies will complete a minimum of ★30 at Faculté Saint-Jean and a minimum of ★30 in the Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences [see BSc in Environmental and Conservation Sciences—Bilingual/Baccalauréate ès sciences (sciences de l’environment et de la conservation—bilingue)  and Transfer Applicants ].
