BSc in Forestry

General Information

The BSc in Forestry is for students who appreciate the need to manage forested areas with due concern for all resources and who have the capability and knowledge to manage forested areas as integrated ecological entities. Students are prepared for careers as Registered Professional Foresters. Program details are available on the Faculty website.


The program includes two field schools (RENR 101 and REN R 299) that provide training in technical aspects of forestry. REN R 101 should be taken in the first year just before the start of regular classes. REN R 299 is normally taken in the spring between second and third years. REN R 299 must be taken prior to the fourth year of study, to ensure that students are able to apply the skills learned in the last year of their program.   The program also includes a capstone course .
