God has created and sustains this world, yet has entrusted His creation to humanity to steward it by developing its potential while simultaneously caring for and protecting it. However, as we look at the world around us, we can see that humanity faces significant environmental challenges that are complex, multi-faceted, and of ever-increasing importance. As you study nature and how humans interact with God’s creation, grow in your calling as a steward of the earth and its natural resources. You will learn to integrate scientific, technological, social, political, economic, theological, philosophical and perhaps even artistic perspectives to gain a deep understanding of current environmental issues.
The scientific aspects of environmental issues are emphasized, with a strong focus on biology and chemistry. In addition to courses about contemporary environmental issues, sustainability, and environmental philosophy, you will learn about ecology and field biology, chemical analysis of water and soil, environmental impact assessments, geographical information systems (GIS), and more.

" My heart has always longed for justice in this broken world. We see and hear stories every day of how God’s creation and His people are suffering. But I was always asking myself, “what is my role in seeking justice?” I grew up wanting to be a part of a movement that would seek God’s shalom in this world but didn’t know where to turn. My education at Redeemer was a huge stepping stone to make these desires a reality. At Redeemer I was given an opportunity to learn about God’s plan for this world, and what He requires of us as His servants. I was able to interact with people from a variety of Christian traditions and was encouraged to ask tough questions and to explore what it meant to truly live as a disciple of Christ in today’s world. My faith and worldview were incredibly transformed after my time at Redeemer. My program offered a wide variety of practical experience and networking opportunities through internships, field trips, and off-campus learning programs. My faith was tested, tried and strengthened through theology courses but also through my experiences connecting with people and places in downtown Hamilton. I am now working in the communications field with a Christian international aid and development organization. We seek justice and love mercy in a broken world because God requires it of us. My education was crucial to this journey and am thankful to God that I trusted Him when He led me to Redeemer. "
