Natural Resource Science
Play an active role in protecting and managing our world’s resources. As a natural resource scientist, you will apply scientific principles and knowledge toward the management and conservation of water, forests, rangeland, soil, minerals, fisheries and wildlife across Canada and around the world.
Graduates will find many exciting career opportunities within areas such as land-use planning, conservation biology, energy use, climate change, renewable resource management, forest and wildlife management, and natural resource policy.
Take advantage of experiential learning opportunities unique to Bachelor of Natural Resource Science students such as industry co-op placements, undergraduate research and an international field school in Belize.
