Honors Program

This program requires a minimum of 132 credit hours. At least 60 must be upper division and 12 must be outside the Faculty of Science. Of these 60, at least 48 must be in one subject area and are normally from the 300-400 level required or optional courses in an area of emphasis. Exceptions must be approved by a faculty advisor. Further requirements are listed in each area of emphasis. Minimum CGPA for continuation and graduation is 3.00. General University and Faculty of Science regulations also apply.

Biology

Students must complete all requirements in the major program for this area of emphasis, plus all requirements for the honors program. The required 48 upper division credit hours in a specific subject requires all of

BISC 490-5 Research Design

BISC 491-5 Research Technique

BISC 492-5 Research Reporting

Other courses may be substituted subject to the approval of a faculty advisor.

Chemistry

Students must complete all requirements for this area of emphasis in the major program, plus all requirements for the honors program, and also

CHEM 481-5 Undergraduate Research

To fulfil the required 48 upper division credit hours in a specific subject area, students choose further major program courses as options in years three and four. Other courses may be substituted subject to the approval of a faculty advisor.

Environmetrics

Students must complete all requirements for this area of emphasis in the major program, plus all requirements for the honors program, and also

STAT 450-3 Statistical Theory

To fulfil the required 48 upper division hours in a specific subject area, students normally will choose further courses listed in the major program as options in years three and four. Other courses may be substituted on approval of a faculty advisor.

Quantitative Techniques for Resource Management

Students must complete all requirements for this area of emphasis in the major program plus all requirements for the honors program.

Students must complete all requirements for this area of emphasis in the major program, plus all requirements for the honors program. To fulfil the required 48 upper division credit hours in a specific subject area, the student normally will choose further courses listed in the major program as options in years three and four. Other courses may be substituted with approval of a faculty advisor.

Cooperative Education Program

This program combines relevant work experience with academic studies. Students alternate semesters on campus and in study related employment. The program includes pre-employment orientation and four full-time paid work semesters. A major and honors program leading to a BSc degree in environmental science and cooperative education are available to qualified students.

To enrol, students should attend coop information meetings held in the first two weeks of the semester prior to the semester in which they wish to work. Seek advice from Faculty of Science Coop Education as early as possible in your university career to facilitate optimal scheduling. For more information, contact the coop coordinator, Science and Environment Co-op Program, 8108 South Science Building, telephone 778.782 4716.

Qualifications for Registered Professional Biologist of BC

Registered professional biologist (RPBio) status is an important and common qualification for biologists practising in BC. Environmental science students can meet the academic qualifications by taking three more biology courses at the 200 level or higher, beyond the requirements for the biology stream. RPBio status is then possible after three years of appropriate work experience and completion of an acceptable professional report. Students and graduates may join the Association of Professional Biologists of BC (APB) as student biologists and biologists in training respectively, before they meet all of the qualifications. For more information, contact the biology stream advisor or the Association of Professional Biologists of BC at apbbc@tnet.net.
