Applied Biology Accreditation Announcement

SFU's School of Environmental Science is pleased to announce a new accreditation agreement with the British Columbia College of Applied Biology for the Spring 2021 Environmental Science Major, Applied Biology concentration.   

For students who are interested in a career as a Professional Biologist, reviewing the requirements for the RPBio designation from the College of Applied Biology is your first step. By completing the Environmental Science Major, Applied Biology concentration (Spring 2021), you would be on the way to fulfilling the academic requirements for the designation. You would still need to fully meet all other credentialing requirements as set out by the College of Applied Biology which includes work experience, professional reports, and references.  Current students who do not want to switch to the 2021 Spring concentration, can connect with the College directly to inquire about the designation.

As this accreditation has been requested by current and past students, our faculty and staff are pleased that this is the first Environmental Science Major (applied biology concentration) in BC to sign an accreditation agreement with the College of Applied Biology. Now, our Applied Biology Concentration curriculum has a direct link to one of the many professional careers for environmental scientists.

If you are interested in switching to the new Spring 2021 concentration or have questions, please contact Sara Bucci, your Environmental Science Advisor
