Renewable Resource Management provides essential skills in resource management coupled with a broader understanding of the role of management in society, and it combines science, field study, economics, policy, and project design and implementation to produce a unique educational experience for students.


Sustainable use of our land, water and plant resources is increasingly recognized as a key societal goal in the 21st Century. Management of these resources requires a combination of applied science and management skills with an understanding of the broad societal context. Renewable Resource Management provides essential skills in resource management coupled with a broader understanding of the role of management in society.

Renewable Resource Management combines science, field study, economics, policy, and project design and implementation to produce a unique educational experience for students. Graduates will be grounded in key applied-science skills such as the use of computer-based decision support systems, identification of key landscape components and evaluation of economics. They will also understand how to apply these tools to specific resource issues throughout Western Canada.

The Bachelor of Science in Renewable Resource Management offers two specializations. The Resource Science specialization provides students with hands-on, practical experience in field measurement and assessment. The Resource Economics and Policy specialization involves the development of policies directly relevant to the management of bioresources.
