SUSTAINABLE RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

 

Please note, our sustainable resource management program will next be accepting applications for the fall of 2015.

 

The SRM - what is it?
The Sustainable Resource Management (SRM) Program is not a Bachelor of Arts degree, nor is it a Science degree. Rather, it is a new Bachelor of Resource Management degree (BRM) that bridges scientific concerns about natural resources with policy development and management. Drawing on existing courses shared among different programs at Grenfell College, the program also introduces fourteen new courses. The Sustainable Resource Management concentration is the first to be offered; other concentrations are currently being considered for future development.

Location, location, location
Sir Wilfred Grenfell College is the ideal place to offer this degree. Grenfell is located in an historically resource-driven and resource-rich environment. The city of Corner Brook and surrounding area is rich with minerals, vast forests, petroleum and a variety of United Nations World Heritage sites and Protected Areas designated by the Department of Environment and Conservation.

The need for resource managers
The Sustainable Resource Management Program aims to produce a different type of resource manager, graduates who have an understanding of ethics, as well as the many ecological, sociological and economic factors. The program acknowledges the goals of sustainable development while simultaneously recognizing the move from the more traditional concept of resource management towards a broader ecosystemic management approach.
