The Faculty of Forestry offers four-year degree programs leading to the Bachelor of Science in Forestry with Forest Resources Management and Forest Operations Majors, Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources Conservation with Science and Management and Global Perspectives Majors, Bachelor of Science in Wood Products Processing, and the Bachelor of Science in Forest Sciences. The Faculty offers elective Co-operative Education Programs to students in these programs. An international specialization option is available in the Forest Resources Management and Forest Sciences programs. The Faculty's graduate degrees include the Master of Forestry, Master of Science, Master of Applied Science, and Doctor of Philosophy (see graduate Degree Programs).
The Faculty is favourably situated for educating men and women as conservation scientists and biologists, natural resource planners and managers, wood product specialists, foresters, forest scientists and biologists, and forest business administrators. It enjoys the benefits of a large university with good libraries and other facilities for study. The Faculty is based in a state-of-the-art 15,000 square metre building. In addition to the lecture and laboratory classrooms, the Faculty supports three research forests in the southcoast, north and central interior regions, totalling almost 25,000 hectares. Formal field classes, special studies, and professional exercises are conducted by students at all of these forests. The Faculty also supports the Centre for Applied Conservation Research, a specialized research centre. The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada and the Western Laboratory of FPInnovations - Forintek are on-campus facilities which cooperate in teaching and research in engineering and forest products. The Centre for Advanced Wood Processing, located adjacent to the Forest Sciences Centre, provides a direct link between the wood processing industry and the University.
