The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV)

Environmental Studies


The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) is situated in the traditional, unceded Territory of the Stó:lō Nation, in the scenic and rapidly growing Fraser Valley east of Metro Vancouver. The university delivers more than 100 programs to approximately 15,000 students annually at its campuses in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission, and Hope, BC, in Chandigargh, India, and on-line. 


UFV offers a Bachelor of Environmental Studies and, starting in Winter 2020, a Bachelor of Environmental Studies--Natural Sciences designation. These programs draw from environmental research and teaching expertise in more than a dozen disciplines. Students benefit from low student: faculty ratios, an emphasis on experiential and community-engaged learning, and research facilities and partnerships in agriculture, paleoecology, forestry, and water quality.
