The Bachelor of Bio-Resource Management program at U of G is as unique as they come!

Science or business? Why not both?!

The Bachelor of Bio-Resource Management’s (BBRM) three majors all combine advanced studies in science, tech and business management, offering diverse and meaningful education that will prepare you for a career as unique as you are. Graduates of this program boast career-oriented training that positions them to excel in their respective niche industries.

Bonus: You can receive credit for research and summer job experience, too!

Explore and adopt responsible and ethical business practices related specifically to our living resources – the natural environment, animals and plants. Our BBRM program was the first of its kinds offered in Canada and has been designed for students committed to stewardship and resource management in the urban, regional and rural sectors.

Follow your passion to any of these three majors

Environmental Management

Play a significant role in protecting the environment. This major combines the applied aspects of environmental science and technology with extensive business training focused on leadership in environmental maintenance, remediation and regulation.
