Bachelor of Bio-Resource Management (BBRM)

Welcome to the Bachelor of Bio-Resource Management program. We are excited to welcome you to the University of Guelph!

Picking your courses for Semester 1 (Fall 2019):

As a BBRM student in Semester 1, you will select 2.50 credits for full-time registration. Your courses are determined by the major into which you have been admitted. Your required courses for Semester 1 are listed here:


Advising Notes:

  • Pick your courses as soon as possible. Availability of desired sections may fill up quickly.
  • You will use WebAdvisor to pick your courses. Detailed instructions on using WebAdvisor are available in the WebAdvisor Tutorial.
  • As you make your class schedule, you’ll notice that many courses have several lecture/lab/seminar sections. Pick the ones that best fit in your schedule to ensure there are no conflicts in your timetable.
  • BBRM students do not select an elective for their first semester.
  • Note that the Equine Management and Environmental Management majors take four courses while Food Industry Management takes five. This is because EQN*1010 and ENVS*1030 are worth double credits (1.00 versus 0.50).
  • Co-op Students: Students who are enrolled in a Co-op major are required to maintain a minimum 70% average in first year over two full-time academic semesters (minimum 4.00 credits) to be eligible to continue in the Co-op program.
  • Review the Schedule of Studies (the order in which you are advised to take courses). Go to the BBRM degree program section of the Undergraduate Calendar and click on your major. Here you will find your major laid out by semester, with listings of courses that are available for selection throughout your studies.

Course Selection Tips:

  • Download the Class Schedule Worksheet to assist in creating your schedule.
  • Select courses that are more limiting (e.g., courses which have one lecture time) first and build the rest of your schedule around those times.
  • Distance Education (called DE) courses are an alternative way to take courses without meeting for regularly scheduled classes. All course content is presented online. You will find DE course times listed in WebAdvisor as TBA. Only select courses are offered in distance education format.

Should you find that all sections of a required course are full, please check the BBRM website for announcements and, if there is no additional information posted, contact your Program Counsellor.
