You did it! Welcome to your new program at York U

Congratulations! You have been admitted to an Undeclared major with the new Faculty of Environmental & Urban Change at York University.

We are dedicated to making positive change for people and the planet and are very excited to have you join our dynamic, diverse and dedicated community of changemakers.

Welcome to EUC!

Your Program Highlights

Your First Year Courses

In your first year, you will enroll in courses that satisfy degree requirements in Cities, Regions, Planning (BES), Environmental Arts and Justice (BES)Global Geography (BA), or Sustainable Environmental Management (BES).

By taking our foundational, first year courses you will get a better sense of what your major is all about, experience the hands on learning we offer in all our majors and explore potential future career pathways. Since these courses will count towards any of majors offered in EUC, you can narrow down your academic interests and career options before having to choose a major, all without losing time on completing your degree at York.

Our advising team will assist you with course selection at your enrolment appointment (see next steps below)

Welcome events for New Students

Our welcome events are planned to help answer your questions about your program, our community and student life at York U. We offer all new students the opportunity to join a mini-lecture with our professors, attend a preview of career ready workshops, meet our students and learn about their experiences in EUC at York U. We look forward to meeting at you at one of our events.
