"The Haida Gwaii Semester represents a tremendous opportunity for students to learn actively about a community, its surrounding forest, and their interdependence. UBC is pleased to be involved in this endeavour." Peter Marshall, Associate Dean, Faculty of Forestry, University of British Columbia
The Haida Gwaii Semester provides students with credit for a full course load (five courses). Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive 15 credits from the University of British Columbia (UBC), as 300-level undergraduate courses.
To ensure a smooth transfer of credits, non-UBC students must apply to their university for a Letter of Permission to enroll as a visiting student at UBC. For more information on this process, view the application process.
“The Haida Gwaii semester allowed me to approach the study of natural resources in a holistic way that was unique to my undergraduate university degree. Learning about history, politics, economics and cultural implications surrounding resource extraction on Haida Gwaii gave context to the complexities surrounding fishing and forestry in Northern communities."
- Julianne Kucheran, 2010 HGS student
