    Course Summary

    This Bachelor of Planning (BPl) is delivered by the University of Northern British Columbia’s famed School of Environmental Planning. This degree encompasses three distinct yet closely related degrees. These are:

    • The BPl in First Nations Planning – focusing on the cultural and social needs of thise communities
    • The BPl in Northern Rural and Community Planning – looking at ladscape design, sustainability and bioregionalism
    • The BPl in Natural Resources Planning, which is detailed below. 

    This program looks at the factors which affect decision making and planning in the context of provincial land use. It includes skills in environmental management, integrated resource management, watershed planning and environmental assessment, as well as more theoretical content on who is responsible for decision making and benefit entitlement in regards to natural resources. You’ll study the way people relate to the environment, and how to minimise the negative impact that people typically have on the world around them.
