Courses

When planning your academic program, it’s often helpful to visit the course website before the class begins in order to better understand the course objectives, required readings, assignments, exams, and grading practices. This can be particularly helpful when selecting electives.
Please note, not all Forestry courses have a corresponding website. Also, some courses are delivered through Canvas, UBC’s online Learning Management System, and will be indicated by the logo: Canvas. Access to courses in Canvas are restricted only to actively registered students for each section.
