Sciences and Applied Sciences
TRU offers a wealth of program options in the Sciences, including degrees in Nursing and Environmental Science
Bachelor of Science Degree
TRU offers three routes into this four-year degree program: a Major in a specific discipline, an Honours program (currently available only in Biology) or a General Science degree.
Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree
This is a four-year degree program (eight academic semesters plus practicum placements).
The curriculum is based on health promotion and the ethic of caring. Students will develop a sensitivity to peoples' experiences with health and healing, and work as partners with clients and other health care providers. Through their understanding and participation in the changing health care system, graduates will be active participants in creating health for all.
The program consist of courses in nursing, humanities, and sciences as they are applied to the nursing care of individuals and their families. Studies will provide students with technical knowledge, human understanding, critical thinking, and research skills to provide responsible, competent, and critical client-centered care.
The program offers the students the opportunity to work in a variety of health care settings. In addition to acute-care hospital experience, students will work in extended and intermediate care, public health, and community health agencies. Throughout the four years, students will have approximately 2,000 hours of nursing practice experience.
Bachelor of Natural Resource Science Degree
A unique program in terms of scope and purpose with extensive fieldwork.
Broadly based with studies in biology, ecology, scientific methods, and sector-specific resource management skills in a cooperative education format (i.e., combining academic and work semesters). This is a four-year degree program, that may be extended to five years with a cooperative education option.
The intent of the program is to provide students with a thorough understanding of the scientific basis of all major resource sectors, in addition to equipping them with skills in communication and conflict resolution. By understanding the scientific, economic, and social basis of natural resource issues, graduates of the program will be able to effectively interface between diverse interest groups, all having a stake in how our terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems are managed.
