General Information

Forests are a source of environmental, economic and social values for all of society.
Continued maintenance of these values requires knowledge of natural dynamics at
the scale of landscapes, and design skills that extend to large land areas over very
long
time horizons. The BScF program prepares professionals to work in complex
situations where the goals of management must be determined by present society,
and the actions to reach these goals must be designed for implementation over
time horizons of centuri
es, in order that future societies will have continued
enjoyment of values from forest landscapes. Graduates have the necessary skills
to:

a.

interact with society to define goals for the forest environment;

b.

take a leadership role in the design and implementa
tion of plans to ensure
achievement of those goals;

c.

help resolve social conflicts associated with issues of environmental and
forested landscape management, and

d.

assess changes in forested landscapes over time and present this information
for public evaluat
ion of progress and review of goals.

Regulations

Students are strongly advised to read the General University Regulations, Section B
of this Calendar, for information not covered in the following:

1.

A minimum of 145 credit hours is required for the BScF degr
ee.

2.

All entering students of the Faculty of Forestry and Environmental
management are required to attend the orientation program organized by
the faculty.

3.

Students must consult with the Student Services Coordinator to receive
advice on course selection. S
tudents may only register for 22 or more credit
hours in a semester if they have a GPA of 3.0 or higher in the previous
assessment period and have obtained permission from the Assistant Dean.

terms during a
period of 8 consecutive calendar years from the date of first
registration in the program. Transfer students will have the time limit
prorated on the basis of advanced credit granted.

6.

A minimum assessment grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 is required at the

end of each year. Refer to the University Regulations section of this calendar,

admitted to the program. If re
-
admitted, the student will
automatically be on academic probation. Failure to meet the normal
academic requirements at the next
time of assessment will result in final
dismissal from the program. Further applications for re
-
admission will not be
considered.

8.

C grade minimum is required for all prerequisite and core courses used for
credit towards the BScF degree.

Honours Program

dents intending to take the Honours Program must declare their intent to the
Assistant Dean prior to the end of the third year of their program and have a CGPA

Curriculum

The core program focuses on forest ecosystem management with a ble
nd of
courses in basic, biophysical, social, and management sciences. Opportunity for
students to pursue an education of substantial personal choice is provided by
elective courses that can be organized in areas of concentration leading to minors.
Students

may also elect to follow minors offered by other faculties, or they may
take a general variety of courses that does not lead to a minor. Twenty
-
four credit
hours are required for a minor in the BScF program.

Core courses are listed below. Students are ad
vised to incorporate electives to
balance workloads to a normal load of five or six courses per term.

Observations and experimentation in a forested environment are critical to the
education of professional foresters so work in natural settings is an important part
of many courses. Extensive use is made of University forests which total 3,000
hectares in a
rea, including the UNB Woodlot adjacent to the Fredericton campus.
To work in these and other areas, students are advised that they will need an
approved hard hat (approximate cost $10.00) and approved safety
-
toed work boots
(approximate cost $100.00).

Students will be required to pay for a portion of costs of extended field trips.

The Canadian Forest Service and the headquarters of the New Brunswick
Department of Natural Resources and Energy are also adjacent to the campus.

multiple values that forests provide to society, as well as the processes that
conserve and sustain the use of forests for habitat and biological div
ersity.
The Minor requires 24 credit hours (approximately 8 courses) of approved
courses as listed below. Credit hours of
core courses in the student’s major
may not be counted towards the credit hour requirement of this minor.
Substitutions may be made

their biological characteristics, management, and current environmental
issues; all these areas are of increasing importance to the way
s society
progresses. Requirements for the Wildlife Conservation Minor are listed under
the Environment and Natural Resources program.

The Wildlife Conservation Minor is also designed to facilitate a student's
ability to acquire professional certification
by The Wildlife Society, the
principal North American organization overseeing the wildlife profession.
Certification requires courses from each of the categories indicated in the
following list and we encourage students to consult with the Student Services

Coordinator early, and on an on

going basis, to obtain advice about selecting
courses that help to meet Wildlife Certification requirements.

3.

Wood Products Minor:

The Wood Products minor concentrates on the
knowledge and skills that are important in wood

structural design or in wood
products manufacturing and marketing. The minor also provides a foundation
for postgraduate studies in wood and timber science.

The minor consists of the following courses (24 ch):
