Environmental Geology

14 weeks Course


You will examine the exciting and dramatic interactions between geology and the surrounding environment. You will consider geologic events—such as volcanoes, tsunami, earthquakes, landslides and avalanches—with a particular approach to their impact on humans and other life. In addition, you will analyze human responses to these hazards and disasters with a perspective towards the future. Furthermore, you will study the relationships between human activity and geology and the impact of one upon the other.

You may enroll in a Continuing Education course at Canadore College if you are 19 years of age or older or if you have earned an Ontario Secondary School Diploma/Ontario Secondary School Graduation Diploma or equivalent.
