The ecosystems and cultures of the North are as unique and valuable as they are vulnerable. If you’re passionate about contributing to the conservation and sustainability of northern resources and communities, then this is the program for you. With a curriculum that integrates natural and social sciences, the Northern Environmental and Conservation Sciences (ENCS) program allows returning professionals, aspiring youth and those seeking a new direction to investigate issues such as wildlife conservation, land use, energy and global climate change.

Students pursuing the Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in ENCS take their third and fourth years of the degree at Yukon College, after having completed 60 first and second year coursework credits at the College or another institution.
