The B.Sc. in Food and Resource Economics (FRE) allows students to critically analyze a wide range of economic issues in food supply chains, including the resource and environmental impacts of food production. The program consists of interdisciplinary courses in land and food systems, math and empirical methods courses, restricted elective courses, primarily in economics and business, and unrestricted electives. Students with an interest in agri-business and resource management can choose the Food and Resource Management stream, or apply for the Master of Management Dual Degree Program Option. Students who complete the B.Sc. (FRE) program are well suited to pursue graduate studies within the Masters of Food and Resource Economics (UBC), the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs (UBC) and various applied economics M.Sc. programs outside of UBC.

    Students can select their courses from one topic area, or mix-and-match across topic areas:

  • Food Markets and Trade
  • Land, Resources and Environment
  • Food and Resource Management.
