REM Major - Planning Stream


The School of Resource and Environmental Management is pleased to offer a REM Major Planning Stream in Spring 2020! This major takes full advantage of the expertise existing across FENV units, characteristics of BEnv majors. It will prepare students to enter employment or continue in graduate studies in the broadly defined areas of resource management or planning, including fisheries management, food and agriculture, sustainable planning and governance, forest management, sustainable energy and transportation, water resource management, environmental planning, ecosystem management, and First Nations resource management. REM requirements, directed by educational goals, provide students with a solid understanding of the interplay of historical, biophysical and socio-cultural factors; Indigenous/First Nations Perspectives; resource use and sustainability; geospatial, statistical and modelling methodologies; decision-making, communication, conflict resolution, and legislative/regulatory frameworks as they relate to resource management and planning.

The REM program requirements include courses from each of the areas of study in the Env cores (i.e. earth systems, ecology, biology, human role in nature, the social and built environments, environmental stewardship and governance, the global scale and planning).
