BSc Honours

Conservation Science and Practice - Landscape Conservation and Management

The Honours in Conservation Science and Practice - Landscape Conservation and Management offers students a higher level of education and substantial research experience for proceeding to post-graduate studies.

To enter the Honours Program, students must have completed 60 credit hours and obtained a minimum Cumulative GPA of 3.33. Attaining the minimum requirement does not guarantee entry into the Honours Program, which is at the discretion of the Conservation Science and Practice Curriculum Committee. Maintenance of a Cumulative GPA of 3.33 is required to remain in the Honours Program.

Honours students are required to complete the degree requirements for the BSc Conservation Science and Practice (Landscape Conservation and Management). In addition, each student must also complete an additional 6 credit hours in the form of an undergraduate thesis (normally NRES 430-6) under the supervision of a faculty member. Students are responsible to find their own undergraduate thesis research supervisor. Faculty members are under no obligation to supervise Honours students.
