Academic Advising and the BES Plan of Study

In addition to completing the program credit requirements, all BES students must develop and maintain a plan of study that will be developed in the core courses and area of concentration courses, and must be approved by the relevant course director and supervisor. The plan of study is centred on a portfolio, which will provide students with an evolving sense of their progress through their program. This is intended to guide second, third and fourth year course selection, to outline future program objectives, and to ensure that the courses chosen keep important options open to each student. The plan of study ensures that both Specialized Honours and bachelors students meet the requirements of their declared area of concentration and the credit requirements of the BES program.

Organized advising sessions in the required courses of the BES program assist students with the development of their plan of study. Plan of study development and academic advising will be incorporated into ES/ENVS 1200 6.0 in the first year of study. In the second year the plan of study will be incorporated into ES/ENVS 2100 6.0, 2200 6.0, 2300 6.0, and 2400 6.0 and students will write a more extensive statement based on a chosen area of concentration. The final plan of study will be produced as part of ES/ENVS 3011 3.0.
