Learning Options

The Master of Environmental Economics and Management (MEEM) and the Master of Science in Environmental Economics and Management (MScEEM) degrees are offered on our campus in Kamloops, BC.

While all 6000-level ECON courses are only available for on-campus study, the first-year GDBA courses as well as the 6000-level BUSN courses in the MEEM degree can be studied online.

On-campus courses

All courses in the GDBA, MEEM and MScEEM programs are available for on-campus study. The MEEM and MScEEM programs start in September of each year; however, the GDBA courses can be started in September, January or May. Small classes ensure high quality interaction between students and the instructor.

Online courses

The six GDBA courses and the four BUSN 6000-level courses in the MEEM degree may also be completed through online study. These courses are available every September, January and May. Technological innovations, such as lecture capture software and online collaboration, guarantee a high level of interaction between faculty and students, and allow the program to maintain a learning atmosphere similar to being in a classroom. Distance learners, like on-campus learners, work in teams analyzing and presenting cases as if they were on campus.

Some other things to keep in mind

Enrolment in our online courses is restricted to students residing in Canada.

Final examinations must be written in person at a local testing centre and are scheduled on weekdays during business hours. Dates for final examinations are set by our office and are included in the course registration information. No changes can be made to the scheduled examination date and time except under extenuating circumstances, such as illness or domestic affliction.

Part-time study

Part-time study options are available. Part-time students must complete the MEEM or MScEEM program within five years of the start of the program. Part-time students are able to select an individualized course load each semester, subject to course availability. As the 6000-level ECON courses are only offered on-campus once per year, careful course planning is necessary for part-time students to ensure they can meet their degree requirements on time.
