The Natural Resources and Environmental Graduate Program is primarily concerned with "People and The Environment". The NRES Graduate Program houses four degrees: PhD NRES, MA NRES, MSc NRES, and the MNRES (Master of Natural Resources and Environmental Studies). All of these degrees are built on an integrative suite of core courses. The MA NRES (with streams in Geography, Environmental Studies, and Tourism) and MSc NRES (with streams in Biology, Environmental Science, Forestry, Geography, and Recreational Reource Management) encourage students to acquire disciplinary expertise in an interdisciplinary context. The NRES Graduate Program is supported by faculty members from across the UNBC campus. Our focus is primarily research and graduate education. The NRES Graduate Program is innovative and integrative in nature in that our research activities include traditional disciplinary as well as interdisciplinary interactions with other local, national, and international colleagues.
