University of New Brunswick has been the home for the Faculty of Forestry and Environmental Management for more than 100 years. Thousands of students have graduated from our program and gone on to have challenging and productive careers in the forestry field in many countries around the world.
At the undergraduate level we have two-degree programs: Bachelor of Science in Forestry and Bachelor of Science in Environment and Natural Resources.
Nearly 90 masters and doctoral students and exchange students from Europe, Asia, Africa, and Canada round out our student body. Students have access to up-to-date labs, field trips, UNB woodlands, international trips, and more.
The Bachelor of Science in Environment and Natural Resources program was started in 2006 and offers 3 options to major in; Environmental Management, Water Resource Management, and Wildlife Conservation. Our students have the opportunity to work on environmental projects for real world clients such as; The City of Fredericton, The City of Saint John, Gros Morne National Park, Nature Trust NB, NB Power, and many more. The program focuses on not just the science of the environment but also the management of many different elements (trees, plants, wildlife, water, etc.). Students learn not only the biology and the chemistry of the natural environment, but also how socio-economic factors come into play, what effects the political landscape have on management decision, and much more.
