Beginning in the 2019 academic year UNBC will offer a new degree, the BSc in Conservation Science and Practice that will allow student to pursue one of two majors: Wildland Conservation and Landscape Conservation.
Students pursuing a BSc in Conservation Science and Practice from UNBC focus on understanding and addressing the contemporary challenges facing the sustainable use and conservation of our environment. Navigating these challenges requires a strong scientific foundation, including the necessary appreciation for both the natural and human dimensions of conservation and management.
This degree equips you with the knowledge to enter a solutions-based career that actively contributes to solving today’s conservation and management problems.
UNBC's goal is to provide you with the philosophical foundation, scientific theory, and technical skills to address the challenge of maintaining the functioning of ecosystems across developed, developing and still wild landscapes.
