|Field of Study:||Natural Resources Management and Policy
|Description:||The Natural Resources Management program offers students an integrated resource management approach with specialization through majors in Forestry, Wildlife and Fisheries, and Outdoor Recreation and Conservation. The recognition that management of any natural resource has implications for all other natural resources is a primary driving factor in the undergraduate curriculum for this degree program. Multiple and sustainable resource management is emphasized. The Forestry major is accredited by the Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board and meets certification requirements for the BC Forest Professional. Government, industry and private experts assist in course presentations. The University has two research forests available to students in this program.
The Honours in Forest Ecology and Management offers students a higher level of education and research experience for proceeding to post graduate studies. Honours students are required to complete the degree requirements for the BSc Natural Resources Management (Forest Ecology and Management Major). In addition, required hours of electives credits must be at the 300 or 400 level and each student must complete a 6 credit hour research thesis under the supervision of a faculty member.
