Investigate Planet Earth to Understand Environmental Interactions Between Geology, Biology, and Hydrology
Investigate planet earth to understand environmental interactions between geology, biology, and hydrology.
The Harquail School of Earth Sciences and its Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) are housed in the Willet Green Miller Centre in the world’s largest mineral exploration and mining-service cluster. Located on the southern rim of one of the world’s largest, oldest and best-exposed meteorite impact sites, close to numerous base metal mines and a large variety of rock types, Sudbury’s geology provides unique opportunities for field instruction, pure and applied research. This includes for example the exploration of ore deposits, understanding geological processes in the Earth interior and on its surface and the study of environmental processes. The success of more than 40 continuous years of environmental reclamation efforts has led to numerous national and international awards, including a Government of Canada Environmental Achievement Award, a United States Chevron Conservation Award, and a United Nations Local Government Honours Award.
With over 330 lakes and access to over 1000 km of trails, your backyard becomes both your recreational space and laboratory!Visit the Harquail School Website

Positioning students for employment and success
Take advantage of small class sizes that provide an open and hands-on learning environment with a high focus on field-based instruction. The School is comprised of 20 faculty who are proven leaders in their fields, recognized through reputable awards including three Duncan Derry Medal winners. Located in the Willet Green Miller Centre, one of the largest earth science resource centres in North America, the location provides ample opportunities for students to find employment within their field while at Laurentian University. The building houses several geology-related research centres such as the Ontario Geological Survey, the Ontario Geoscience Laboratories (Geo Labs), and the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development and Mines.
The School contains a wide array of analytical instrumentation to support both the research and educational needs, and benefits from sharing laboratory facilities with one of the largest and most advanced geoscience analytical facilities in North America, the Geoscience Laboratories.
The four-year B.Sc. in Environmental Geosciences is designed to meet the minimum knowledge (academic) requirements for registration as a professional geoscientist (P.Geo.) with the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario (APGO). Registration with the APGO will significantly enhance career prospects of Environmental Geosciences students.
