Program: Sustainable Environmental Management
Year of study: 3rd year
High school or other academic institutions attended: Bishop Marrocco/Thomas Merton C.S.S.
Reason for choosing program: I have always had a passion for the environment, but my interests lie in a wide range of topics. Therefore, when I saw how interdisciplinary this program is, I knew it was perfect for me!
Intentions for the future: My intentions for the future include continuing my studies with a masters degree in Edinburgh, Scotland. I also hope to pursue a career in environmental consultancy for different businesses, on smaller and larger scales. This will give me an opportunity to change my work environment and research areas in line with my many interests, while also aiding businesses in their sustainability efforts. Additionally, as a small business owner myself, I have a first hand account of how sustainability practices can be implemented on a smaller scale.
Favourite part of the program: My favourite part about the program is how diverse the topics of study are, but also how interconnected they are, where you can use the knowledge you gained in one class to help support your statement in another. It truly allows you to build a well rounded and strong understanding of the topics for your future studies and career.
