Ecosystem Management – Bachelor of Applied Science

The Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Ecosystem Management is a two-year post-diploma that prepares graduates for exciting work in the fields of environmental management and restoration, and fish and wildlife management. This credential was designed in consultation with environmental industry partners and builds on a diploma in environmental sciences, resource management, or environmental assessment and restoration (or equivalent). The program will integrate applied field and lab skills into a framework of theoretical studies, and culminate in a capstone learning experience.

The Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Ecosystem Management is a unique and in-demand credential in the Albertan and western Canadian post-secondary sectors. Key attributes that differentiate this degree from traditional bachelors’ degrees include a curriculum strongly focused on industry relevant technical and field skills, environmental science concentrations that are unique to the system, and interdisciplinary coursework. In addition, students will be required to acquire non-credit certifications in various environmental field techniques (e.g. H2S Alive, water craft operation, small engine repair, electro-fishing, WHMIS, first aid, etc.).
