Bachelor of Science - Forestry

A Bachelor of Science in Forestry (BScF) is about trees, plants, water, and wildlife management – the atmosphere, soils, and landscapes. It’s about people’s beliefs and values. It’s about the economy and about spirit. BScF is about managing all these in sustainable ways. It’s about solving complex problems for the benefit of current and future generations.

Why Forestry at UNB?

The BScF program at UNB is one of the oldest in Canada and has been offered for more than 100 years. We have a deep history in producing graduates who are much sought after in the industry, and many have gone on to become leaders in the field. We are the only English Faculty of Forestry in Atlantic Canada.

Hands-on learning

You will learn outdoors in our university’s forests, including the 1,500-hectare University Forest near the Fredericton campus. You will also collaborate on projects with the scientists and managers at the nearby Atlantic Forestry Research Centre and at the headquarters of the New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources.

Skills you will acquire

  • Highly-developed calculation and computing skills
  • GIS/GPS technology skills
  • Registered Professional Forester designation
  • Know how the forest should be harvested and replanted in ways that sustain its resources and protect wildlife
  • Use management strategies on the forest ecosystem
  • Manage the flow of goods and services from the forest while still protecting it

Language pathway (conditional offer) is available
  • Duolingo with a minimum overall score of 115

International students who do not have an English test score, or who still need to improve their English skills, may be accepted into an undergraduate program on the condition that they will complete full-time English Language Training at UNB before starting their undergraduate degree. Conditional admission still enables students to obtain a study visa into Canada.

Students who are conditionally accepted to the UNB Saint John campus complete their English Language Training at Saint John College. 

Saint John College offers two pathway programs into undergraduate studies: the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Program and the ESL Support Program. The EAP Program is a full-time, semester-based 4-level program designed for students with IELTS scores of 2.0-5.5 (or equivalent). The ESL Support Program is a one-semester, full-time program in which students take three advanced ESL classes along with 1-2 academic credit courses.

Students are tested and placed upon arrival and most students do not need to complete all five levels of language training before entering full-time academic studies. Saint John College programs begin in September, January, or May, although all levels of the EAP Program may not be offered in each semester.
