International in scope and interdisciplinary in nature, UBC’s Bachelor of Science in Global Resource Systems is a degree you design
for yourself, centered on local and international resource issues. You will select a region of the world to focus
on, as well as a resource discipline within the Faculty of Land and Food Systems. With these as your focal point,
you will develop a richly layered understanding of international resource issues by taking courses across the arts,
sciences and social sciences. You will explore complex resource problems. You will travel to another country. You
will graduate prepared to participate on the international stage, bringing your insight and education to bear on
some of the world’s most multilayered resource-driven problems.
Global Resource Systems (GRS) is a major in itself — and it’s one you design entirely
for yourself. Find out more about what GRS involves, some courses you might take as part of your studies, and
career possibilities for when you graduate. We’ve also got links to alumni bios, where you can read about how LFS
grads are using their Global Resource Systems degree in their careers.
My intention is not to say don't plant, don't do community gardens, but I don't think it is necessarily in the best interest of Vancouver to push something without informing people of all the considerations they need to make.
I'm very proud to be part of Purdys. I couldn't have predicted when I was going to UBC that I would one day be President of Purdys, but I knew that whatever I was going to do, I was going to love it and be successful at it.
