UFV’s four-year Bachelor of Environmental Studies (BES) (Natural Sciences) program prepares you to work in the dynamic field of environmental science and to help organizations and communities reach their sustainability goals. Your core courses will help you explore the relationship between humans and the environment. You will learn about resource management, sustainability research, and innovative problem-solving. You will also learn how to communicate your research and ideas effectively. The BES (Natural Sciences) is designed to be interdisciplinary. It will help you create connections between several career-building subjects: geography, biology, philosophy, agriculture, economics, communications, and more. You will specialize in the natural sciences by completing upper-level science courses that include lab and fieldwork across the Fraser Valley region, enabling you to pursue professional accreditation after graduation.
