Program description

This curriculum covers project-level and large-scale environmental planning challenges in developments that harm nature.

Provincial land use planning, environmental assessment, watershed planning, and integrated resource management.

Prince George and northern British Columbia offer a living laboratory to test ideas, share thoughts, and find solutions. Living in the region will shape what and how you learn about northern communities and First Nations, the effects of resource exploitation on the landscape and people, and the need for fresh approaches to long-standing social and environmental concerns.

Biology, geography, environmental science, First Nations studies, forestry, economics, international studies, outdoor recreation and tourist management, and School of Environmental Planning Courses can help you understand the world.
