The Bachelor of Indigenous Land Stewardship (B.I.L.S.) is an interdisciplinary program designed to prepare students for careers working with and for Indigenous governments on land stewardship. The four-year program, which takes place in Westbank, British Columbia, establishes a highly practical and skills-based foundation for students working in land management, forestry, and other environmental management disciplines. The program instructs students in diverse courses, from ecology, to remote sensing, law and governance, communication, business, management, Indigenous research methods, data management and capacity building (among others). An experienced team of First Nations forestry professionals and educators, forestry professionals, and UBC forestry professors developed these courses. The curriculum has four-times the amount of fieldwork of a regular forestry degree, reflecting the practical and skills based focus of the program. The program consists of 117 core course credits, 12 non-restricted elective credits.
