UBC Faculty of Forestry Introduces New Major
Tristan Banwell, Forestry Admissions Advisor
The Faculty of Forestry at UBC is pleased to announce a new major within the Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources Conservation. The new Global Perspectives Major will compliment the existing major in Science and Management, allowing students to broaden the scope of their education beyond BC and the Pacific Northwest.
The Global Perspectives major focuses on the conservation and management of renewable and non-renewable resources, policy formation and planning within a global context. Two notable features of this major are the international education that students receive through either a study abroad period or an intensive international field school or related experience, and the global issues capstone course, which uses international case studies and modelling approaches to explore the effects of decision-making on resource sustainability. Compared to the Science and Management Major, the Global Perspectives Major examines additional resource systems, has more emphasis on international policy and planning, and requires mandatory international experience.
