Earth science literacy is critical to meet the needs of modern society. The study of the Earth is focused not only on the rocks and minerals that make up solid Earth but also on the interaction of these materials with other earth systems. An understanding of Earth’s evolution through time allows earth scientists to interpret present-day conditions on our planet and predict how they will change in the future; these changes will affect both human societies and the natural environment.

Earth scientists are stewards of the planet’s mineral, energy and water resources. They must also be problem solvers, as Earth’s natural resources are currently threatened by climate change, overconsumption and natural disasters. In the North, we live in a complex landscape where earth scientists must address the legacy of contaminated sites, support sustainable resource discovery and extraction, and grapple with a rapidly changing environment.

Students completing the two-year program will receive a diploma in Earth Sciences and be eligible for transfer into upper-level standing in many Canadian B.Sc. geoscience degree programs. A block transfer agreement between Yukon University and Vancouver Island University (VIU) allows Earth Science program graduates to easily transfer between institutions and directly apply all completed courses towards completion of a B.Sc. in geoscience from VIU's Department of Earth Science.

Coursework completed at Yukon University is compatible with the educational requirements for achieving a professional geoscientist (P.Geo.) designation in the environmental geoscience or geology streams. Completion of a B.Sc. degree following the Earth Sciences program allows for upward workplace mobility in scientific and technical fields and enables graduates to continue to upper-level training in science (M.Sc., Ph.D.).

Program pathways and duration

Students can complete the Earth Sciences diploma program with two years of full-time study. Part-time study is welcomed. Students have reduced course requirements in the summer months to allow for geoscience work experiences. Recommended course completion matrices for each year are provided below.

Career opportunities

Employment opportunities exist for program graduates in a wide array of fields including environmental monitoring and protection, water resources, mineral exploration, mining, energy, and engineering/geotechnical fields. Program faculty actively work with students to help find meaningful employment both between the two years of the program and after graduation.

  • English 12 (minimum 65%), Math 12 ( Precalculus), and Chemistry 11; OR
  • Yukon University prerequisite courses ENGL 060 or EAP 060 (minimum B+), MATH 060, and CHEM 050.

Earth Sciences Bridging Program

Applicants who do not meet these requirements are encouraged to apply to the Earth Sciences Bridging Program. This program allows students to complete academic upgrading while starting on their program coursework. Minimum prerequisites for the Bridging Program are:

  • English 12 (minimum 65%), Math 10 ( Principles or Precalculus; minimum 65%), and Science 10; OR
  • Yukon University prerequisite courses ENGL 060 or EAP 060 (minimum B+, MATH 030 (minimum B-), and SCI 030.

Students interested in applying to the Earth Sciences Bridging Program should choose the regular Earth Sciences program when applying for admission. Additional details about Bridging Program acceptance will then be communicated by the Admissions Office.

To be admitted to Yukon University, students must be either 19 years of age or have graduated from high school in their home country. High school graduates are required to provide a high school graduation certificate, translated into English.

Students between the ages of 17 and 19 who have not completed high school in their home country, but have been out of school for a minimum of one year, may be accepted into Yukon University.
