Canada is known globally for its natural resources. But climate change, growing populations and economic growth are putting more and more pressure on sustainability. Natural resources practitioners play a vital role in the long-term stewardship of our fisheries, forests, wildlife and parks.
SIAST offers four Natural Resources programs that will help you be part of the solution. These are the SIAST advantages:
• Natural Resources programs combine classroom study with practical labs, field work and/or work placements for hands-on learning.
• Small class sizes allow one-on-one attention and of plenty of student-instructor interaction.
• Diploma programs share a common first year. Specialize in your second year and then get a second diploma simply by taking a third year at SIAST.
• Natural Resources programs are located at SIAST Woodland Campus in Prince Albert – on the doorstep of Saskatchewan’s vast expanse of northern forests and parks.
• 100% of Natural Resources grads1 rate the ability of their program to prepare them for work in their field of study as good to excellent.
• Graduates enjoy a range of natural resources career opportunities and great starting salaries.
• Excellent transfer agreements with other post-secondary institutions let Natural Resources grads ladder into degree programs at a number of Canadian universities. See Transfer Credits for more information.
