Diploma of Northern Science
The School of Science offers university-transfer courses in mathematics and in the earth, life and physical sciences. Students can complete a one-year Certificate of Science, a two-year Diploma of Northern Science or a four-year Bachelor of Science in Northern Environmental and Conservation Sciences degree.
The Diploma of Northern Science is designed for those who wish either to enter a scientific profession or to work in the North at the technical level.
A wide choice of electives enables students to concentrate on a particular field of study or to construct a general science program with a strong northern focus.
In the first year, students have two options:
- Complete the Yukon University Certificate of Science (or equivalent) OR
- Complete a first-year program comprised of Chemistry, English and selected electives.
Building on this base, in their second year, students take the Northern Studies Core as well as northern-oriented science electives and develop practical expertise by attending the Northern Studies Field Camp.
Courses include: – The Structure of Matter – Chemical Energetics and Dynamics – Introductory Statistics – Northern Field Studies Methods
