This may result in some temporary outages next week. Please keep this in mind when planning your work schedule. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Forestry Undergraduate Essays/Theses


The purpose of the graduating essays/theses is to provide an opportunity for each student, during his/her graduating year, to undertake independent study, under direction of a faculty member, in a subject area of interest to him/her. The Faculty has found that employers in all segments of the natural resources community place a premium upon good oral and written communication. The thesis/essay is an important opportunity for training in rigorous thinking and effective writing.

The essays or theses are organized under different course numbers depending on the program the student is following. Students in the B.S.F. program (Forest Operations or Forest Resources Management majors) must take FRST 497, unless they receive special permission to take FRST 499. Students in the Forest Sciences program must take FRST 498. Students in the Natural Resources Conservation program may elect to take CONS 498. Students in the Wood Products Processing program must take WOOD 493.

UBC Library maintains extensive archives of Forestry undergraduate essays and theses - about 3,200 printed titles from the 1920s until 2008, and online in cIRcle since 2008.
