|Field of Study:||Natural Resources Management and Policy
|Description:||The Forest Ecology and Management degree provides students with a thorough understanding of the science, philosophy, and practice of managing forested ecosystems. Through study and active
learning experiences, students obtain a consistent and broad background in course work that encompasses foundational and integrative topics. Given the range of knowledge and expertise
needed to effectively manage and conserve forested ecosystems, students are provided an opportunity to select a minor and pursue a specialisation consistent with the overall objectives of
the degree. Although the degree is designed to expose students to contemporary knowledge and techniques drawn from a variety of disciplines in the natural and social sciences, students are
encouraged to challenge conventional knowledge paradigms and approaches to forest management.The Forest Ecology and Management degree is accredited by the Canadian Forestry
Accreditation Board and meets certification requirements for the Association of BC Forest Professionals. The University has two research forests (Aleza Lake Research Forest, John Prince
Research Forest) available to students in this program.
