Bachelor of Bio-Resource Management Degree (B.B.R.M.)

Environmental Management Major

This major will require the completion of 20.00 credits.

Students deficient in U level Mathematics or Chemistry are required to enrol in the appropriate upgrading course(s), MATH*1000 or CHEM*1060 (available in a distance format) during their first year. MATH*1000 is to be completed before Semester 2 (may substitute for SOIL*2010 in Semester 1 and take SOIL*2010 as the restricted elective in Semester 2). CHEM*1060 must be completed before Semester 3. Students also may access summer distance education courses such as SOIL*2010 or ECON*1050, to maintain their progress.

Note: Students have three fall and one winter time slots available to take the courses above, and two fall and one winter spaces for free electives, during semesters 5-8. This meshes well with the course offerings except for the final group, where students may have to plan to use their winter free elective space for one of the courses.
