Bachelor of Environmental Science & Studies
Trent afforded me the opportunity to connect directly with my professors, who in turn became excellent professional references. I worked part-time through a TWSP position in my 2nd and 3rd year, the latter as the Environmental Resource Centre Coordinator. This opportunity was crucial, as it bolstered my academic portfolio with professional experience prior to graduating. Beyond that, involvement in student groups on campus not only made my Trent experience unforgettable, it also added an edge to my resume and sharpened several work-force skills. A combination of faculty support, an environment conducive to developing my professional "real world" skills, engaging student groups and a connection to the Peterborough community are the important ways in which Trent played a role in getting me the job I happily do today.

BSc in Environmental & Resource Science & Biology
Trent ERS program is fantastic. Because of the flexibility, you can tailor your education to your area of interest. My specific interest was in contaminants and distribution/toxicity in aquatic systems. Although my work is now primarily related to soil and groundwater contamination and not aquatic systems, my education is critical to my work. I have worked in enforcement of environmental regulations with the Ministry of Environment (MOE), I have worked on investigations of drinking water and wastewater systems, assessment of air quality (indoor air and stack emissions), and now primarily investigations of soil and groundwater contamination through borehole drilling, soil sampling, groundwater monitoring well installations and monitoring.
