Northern Environmental Research And Development Studies NHHS
The Northern Environmental Research Program is a four credit program which will be offered to Grade 12 students, during the second semester. This program is designed for students who enjoy the outdoors and who may be interested in pursuing a post-secondary college or university career in natural resources, natural sciences, or environmental sciences. Students will be involved in a wide variety of projects. Some of which will include data collection, analysis, and communication of information as part of on-going monitoring and scientific research with numerous local agencies and associations involved in natural resource management and environmental monitoring. Students will have opportunities to work with fish, wildlife, and forestry specialists and have input into the provincial data studies in environment and resource management at the college or university level, as well as experience and contacts for future jobs.
Successful completion of these credits, along with other designated courses, will earn the students a “Specialist High Skills Major in the Environment” seal on the Ontario Secondary School Diploma, as well as acknowledgement on the student’s transcript.
Successful completion of the Environmental Research Program with an average of 70% or greater, along with Math 4C, will also allow a student to enter directly into the second semester of any undergraduate program within the Sir Sandford Fleming Collage School of Natural Resources, through an articulation agreement, thus saving one semester of tuition, accommodation, and transportation.
