The UPEI 应用气候变化与适应理学学士学位 program provides students with a strong foundation in climate sciences complemented by courses in climate related policy and cultural impacts of climate change. The degree offers strong comprehensive theory-based courses and a high level of experiential and applied learning. Courses are designed to develop well-rounded students who have a high level of climate change science knowledge supported by highly relevant skills needed to utilize climate change related technology. Faculty members teaching within the 应用气候变化与适应理学学士学位 program are focused on providing quality instruction and student growth within a cohort-based learning community. Graduates of the program will emerge ready to pursue various climate change related careers, professional studies, or graduate education.

This program of study examines "climate change adaptation" which refers to the adjustments that societies or ecosystems make to limit the negative effects of climate change or to take advantage of opportunities provided by a changing climate. Adaptation can range from a farmer planting more drought-resistant crops to a coastal community evaluating how best to protect its infrastructure from rising sea level. 气候变化已经影响到世界各地的社会和生态系统, and many impacts are expected to increase as global temperatures continue to rise. While reducing greenhouse gas emissions is required to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, 一定程度的全球变暖是不可避免的, 由于大气中温室气体的持久性, 以及储存在海洋中的热量. 适应已经发生的变化, 为未来的气候变化做准备, 能否帮助减少社会将面临的气候变化风险.

Years 1 and 2 of the program will be delivered at the UPEI campus located in Charlottetown, PEI.

Years 3 and 4 of the program will be delivered at the Canadian Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation located in St. Peter’s, PEI.
