2011-2012 B.B.R.M.

Please Read Carefully!

Once a Schedule of Studies is published, the University does not go back and “fix it” when courses are deleted or changed. To help you keep track of what you need to graduate, changes to your Schedule of Studies are listed below. Some students find it useful to review these changes with a copy of their Program/Academic Evaluation in front of them. This way you can mark off what you have completed and what you still need to complete. Please note that substitutions won’t always show up on your Program/Academic Evaluation. If you find errors on your Program/Academic Evaluation, or if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your Program Counsellor.

Changes are listed for each major:

Changes for Environmental Management

Starting in Fall 2012, most NRS, GEOL, MET, SOIL and ENVS courses will change to the prefix "ENVS". Some courses will change numbers, but not all. If applicable, changes to core courses are noted below.

Semesters 1-4:

BIOL 1030 and BIOL 1040 are no longer offered. If you still require one or both of these courses, please contact your Program Counsellor.

SOIL 2010 is now ENVS 2060.

Semester 5:

SOIL 3080 is now ENVS 3080 and is offered through Distance Education only.

Semester 6:

MET 2020 will no longer be offered after Winter 2013 (it will be listed as ENVS 2020). You must take ENVS 2030 as a substitution for this course if you do not have ENVS 2020. ENVS 2030 is a Fall only course; plan to take it Semester 5 or 7. You will need to be signed in by the instructor to waive the MATH 1080 prerequisite.

NRS 3000 will change to ENVS 2340 in Winter 2014.

STAT 2060 has moved to a Fall offering. Take this in Semester 5 or 7 if you have not already taken it. UPDATE: STAT 2060 will be offered in class and online Winter 2014.

Semester 7:

SOIL 4250 is now ENVS 4250. UPDATE: ENVS 4250 will no longer be offered. Content has been moved to ENVS 4150.

NRS 4110 is now ENVS 4150.

Semester 8:

GEOL 3060 is now ENVS 3060.

GEOG 3420 prerequisites have changed. As a BBRM.EM student, this will be waived for you in semester 8. W15: Melinda will sign your Course Waiver Request form for you as there is no current instructor.

FARE 4310 prerequisites have changed. As a BBRM.EM student, this will be waived for you in semester 8. W15: Dr. Fox will sign your Course Waiver Request form for you once you meet with him to discuss this.

Restricted Electives:

SOIL 3070 will no longer be offered. It is being replaced with ENVS 3130: Lab and Field Methods in Groundwater which will first be offered in Fall 2012.

SOIL 3200 will no longer be offered. Starting in Winter 2013 it will be offered under a new course code: ENVS 3310. You may take this course as restricted elective.

ENVB 3330 is no longer offered.

NRS 3100 is now ENVS 3110. UPDATE: ENVS 3110 will no longer be offered effective Winter 2014

NRS 2120 is now ENVS 2120. It is now a Fall only course and is only offered through Distance Education.

BIOL 3120 is no longer offered; the replacement course requires STAT 2040, so we are investigating your ability to take this course. UPDATE: STAT 2060 has been added as a prerequisite to the new course, BIOL 3060 (Populations, Communities and Ecosystems). BIOL 3060 is a combination of BIOL 3110 and BIOL 3120. If neither course has been completed, students can apply BIOL 3060 towards the restricted elective requirement. If BIOL 3110 has been completed, BIOL 3060 can be completed and count towards restricted electives. Please come talk to Melinda if you are in this category; we will need to complete a course waiver form for BIOL 3060. If BIOL 3120 has been completed, please select other restricted electives

NEW RESTRICTED ELECTIVES ADDED:

The following courses are now accepted restricted electives. They will not appear on your Program/Academic Evaluation as restricted electives (this will be done manually on your graduation application), but you do not need the approval of the Faculty Advisor or Program Counsellor to use these as restricted electives:

  • GEOG 3020
  • ENVS 3030
  • ENVS 3040
  • ENVS 3150
  • EDRD 3450

OTHER NOTES:

If you are here longer than Winter 2015, It is also my understanding that ENVS 3130 (Fall only) and ENVS 3070 (Fall only) will no longer be offered. As well, a new course, ENVS 4390 will be a 1.00 course starting Fall 2015 and it will replace ENVS 3120, ENVS 4150 and ENVS 4250.
