or day. Corner Brook is a vibrant, safe, pretty city where everyday living is a pleasure. With a population of 22,000, Corner Brook has all the amenities of a larger city with the charm of a smaller town. Corner Brook is the service centre for the entire western region, which has a population of about 45,000. Movie theatres, galleries, restaurants, fitness centres and shopping malls are all within walking distance of the campus.
THE CITY OF CORNER BROOK IS LIKE GRENFELL COLLEGE – SMALL IN STATURE BUT LARGE ON LIFE.
You will find Corner Brook where the mighty Humber River flows into the Bay of Islands. Settled into a valley of the Long Range Mountains, the city is a mecca for those looking for outdoor adventure. A forested trail system sits right at the heart of the city. City residents are always on the move, taking advantage of the area’s alpine and cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, golfing, hiking, boating and fishing.

Like you, Sir Wilfred Grenfell College is evolving. Our new bachelor of resource management degree has hit the ground running, and we’ve grown our research capacity nationally and internationally. We have begun construction on a new academic wing and a new residence that will increase our on-campus capacity by 200 rooms.
WE’RE GROWING, BUT WE’RE STAYING TRUE TO OUR ROOTS.
Though our program offerings are diversifying, we remain dedicated to the liberal arts and science tradition. We are proud to be part of Memorial University – the largest university in Atlantic Canada. But with approximately 1,250 students at Grenfell College, you’ll enjoy a personalized education in an inspiring and distinctive location.
GOOD TO KNOW:
The largest astronomical telescope in Atlantic Canada will be installed in its own
observatory dome enclosure on the new wing of the academic building. The new wing is due to open in Spring 2011.
Where else can you find first-rate alpine and cross-country ski facilities within a 15-minute drive of a university campus? How about hiking and kayaking adventures? Or maybe you’ll be enchanted by Gros Morne National Park, recognized by the United Nations for its ancient history and unique geology. Whatever the weather – and we get all kinds – you will find something exciting to do in this adventurer’s paradise. Warm summers might find you exploring Corner Brook’s cave system or meandering along our city trails. Winters are equally invigorating – an average snowfall of about 400 centimetres makes Corner Brook the snowiest city in Canada according to Natural Resources Canada. So break out your skis and snowshoes! All work and no play? Not on our watch!

Jenna Jones, BBA
The bachelor of business administration (BBA) at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College is a 120-credithour undergraduate business program that is designed to deliver a comprehensive foundation in the fundamentals of business and decision-making. The program also emphasizes the importance of honing such practical skills as critical thinking, research and analysis, professional verbal and written communication and interpersonal conduct. A required suite of traditional business courses ensures you will be equipped in the functional areas of business operation, such as accounting, marketing, finance and human resources. In addition, the Grenfell BBA allows you to concentrate on one of three growing areas of interest in our ever-evolving business environment: contemporary business studies, small business and entrepreneurship, and regional economic development.
There are several ways you can gain entry to the Grenfell BBA. You may apply for admission directly from high school, or those with the appropriate academic background may be eligible for advanced standing. If you have advanced standing or are a transfer student, make sure you consult with the program chair before seeking enrolment in the program.
Jenna Jones chose Grenfell's business administration program because she saw it as a degree that would open a lot of doors. "The BBA program helped me establish a strong work ethic," said Jenna, who hails from Lourdes-de-Blanc-Sablon, Que. "It pushed me to pay attention to detail, to see things from a logical standpoint and to develop critical opinions on real life issues." She said the level of instruction at Grenfell is by far its best asset – "the professors are very knowledgeable, agreeable, helpful and dedicated. They set the bar high." And even though Jenna has graduated, she still insists she can't get enough of the place. "If I’m not taking classes here, I find work here. It’s a fun and fresh place to be. There is always a new project, art exhibit, fundraiser, social, society or other activity to take part in."

Daniel Pinsent says Grenfell’s English degree helped prepare him for his studies at graduate school. Although at first he had some misgivings about attending a smaller college, he found out the opposite was true. “The third and fourth years of my degree at Grenfell featured many classes that were as intimate and challenging as graduate seminar classes,” says Daniel, who is pursuing his his PhD at Queen’s University. “The enthusiasm these professors show for the material they teach and the people they educate is infectious. I have been inspired to become an English professor and I can only hope to have such a strong impact on future students as Grenfell professors have had on me.”

The Conference Board of Canada 2010 found that graduates with scientific degrees tend to learn more and that mathematics and other sciences are widely considered to be the underpinnings of modern innovation capacity. As a graduate, you will find your degree useful as a foundation for a bachelor of education. In addition, upon completing this undergraduate degree you can use it as a springboard into professions such as law, dentistry, medicine, journalism or library science.
Jason Lanza, B.Sc.
The beauty of the general science degree is your ability to learn about several different subject areas, as opposed to focusing on just one. As a student in the general science degree program, you will complete a minimum of eight courses in three of the following five disciplines: biology, chemistry, earth systems, mathematics and physics. Any combination will allow you to accumulate courses in at least three teachable science areas. So rather than the usual major and minor, you will, in essence, be taking subjects in areas that are equivalent to a triple minor. A general or honours option is available.

Grenfell's general science degree gave Jason Lanza the experience he needed to become a science teacher. "I want to teach specifically the areas of mathematics and physics," said Jason, who hails from Corozal Town, Belize. "All the professors who taught me the sciences of mathematics, physics, chemistry, earth science and environmental science have truly stimulated my interest to pursue further studies at a graduate level. They have challenged and guided me to discover my true potential and my true interest in the fields of science. Because of them, I am even more eager to become a teacher. I want to be like them.” Jason was the winner of the 2009 University Medal Academic Excellence in General Science.

Historical studies is more than learning facts, dates and lists of events. It’s an intriguing, challenging, creative and inspiring form of intellectual and practical exploration. At its essence, it helps everyone make better sense of the moments, years and centuries which have led to today’s world.
STUDYING THE PAST HELPS US UNDERSTAND THE PRESENT, AND PLAN FOR THE FUTURE.
To understand the past, you must begin by learning from whence we came. You must understand what it was like when European powers encountered native peoples, why wars were fought over religion, trade and power, and what led to key political and diplomatic decisions. History addresses the differences which surround us, such as between countries like Canada and the United States, places like Newfoundland and Labrador. It also provides different ways of looking at the past, the many viewpoints of history’s rulers, artists, philosophers, scholars and just plain folk. Our historical studies faculty bring to life the study of Greek, Roman, Medieval, European, North Atlantic, Newfoundland and Canadian history. Their specializations and interests encompass art, national and colonial history, military history, the history of ideas, social and cultural history, and more. What we teach also links to related areas of historical studies, including literary and theatre history, history of science, and social and cultural studies.
Carolynne Gabriel, BA
Our historical studies program offers a flexible and multi-disciplinary approach to history. Choosing it as your major will help you develop the ability to articulate the significance of political, social, cultural, economic and military events. You may also take a joint major or consider taking historical studies as a minor. At Grenfell we will help you develop the ability to analyze and interpret past events, and to learn how they shaped our world. Our faculty make every effort to help students think critically and become independent thinkers. The research, writing and other skills you will learn can open doors to professional careers in education, law, public service, journalism, tourism, museum studies and politics, communications and knowledge-based industries. Our low student-professor ratios combine with quality instruction to provide a more personalized teaching approach. And our excellent library system provides collections of documents and scholarly works to assist and encourage students to learn about the past.
Carolynne Gabriel believes Grenfell’s BA in historical studies ensures that students have a well-rounded understanding and appreciation of history. “A broader understanding of how history has unfurled, as well as the instruction received on how to think critically, are important for understanding the present and are applicable in one's own life,” says Carolynne, who hails from Komoka, ON. “The instruction I’ve received at Grenfell is of the best quality, not only because the professors are highly knowledgeable in their areas of interest, but also because they are very supportive and always willing to offer assistance and encouragement.”

"The humanities teach you to think critically, which is essential in the workplace as well as everyday life," said Josh. "The instruction I've received has been superior; the beauty of the program is that you grow to know professors from a variety of disciplines. Humanities courses allow you to develop rhetoric while being educated on a broad range of topics - If you're willing to learn, there is always an open door at Grenfell.”

THE DESIRE TO FIND OUT WHY PEOPLE DO THE THINGS THEY DO.
The social/cultural studies program examines the practices and meanings of everyday life from social, cultural and historical perspectives. It questions why we wake the dead, have differing notions of the perfect family, allow the mass media to influence us, choose a particular form of medical care or feel bound to the place where we were born. Some say our culture – the knowledge and skills we learned as we grew up – shapes us. Others argue that society – our community and the media – influences us. The program allows you to examine the interplay of society, culture and history from three complementary perspectives: anthropology, folklore and sociology. These areas share an emphasis on the concept of culture and rely on the ethnographic method – an approach that helps you understand the world from the perspective of the people you are studying. The social/cultural studies degree will prepare you for work in social research, governmental and non-governmental organizations, social policy and community/rural development, immigration, public relations, journalism, cultural heritage preservation and promotion, and the expanding cultural tourism sector. It also provides a valuable background for careers in business, human resources, policing, law, medical care and social work.
Candice Pike, BA
As an interdisciplinary program, social/cultural studies will allow you to use various lenses in studying human behaviour: the sociological imagination lens, the comparative cross-cultural lens and the informal folkloric communication lens, among others. In keeping with the tradition of cultural studies, social/cultural studies at Grenfell is not taught as a unified theory but as a diverse field of study encompassing many different approaches, methods and academic perspectives. It upholds scholarly discourse that draws on theory and methods from these various perspectives while investigating the relations between specific cultural practices and cultural objects under conditions limited by power and defined by contestation, modification and struggle. Our faculty bring to scholarly discourse a wide range of research interests. Faculty research interests include rural development dynamics, the modern funeral services industry, non-verbal communication, medicine, Aboriginal identity and socio-economic issues, belief systems, identity construction in women’s narrative and the interrelationship of power/knowledge, and western social and cultural institutions.
When Candice Pike enrolled in Introduction to Sociology, something clicked. Inspired by her professors, the social/cultural studies graduate began a journey that helped her better understand how people connect to each other and how this could help her contribute to the world. "I've always been interested in social dynamics," said Candice. "I like to observe how people interact socially as opposed to psychologically." Upon graduating she received a $14,000 assistantship and a SSHRC scholarship to do a master's in dance at York University. She is currently returning to her social/cultural studies roots as a fully-funded PhD candidate in folklore at MUN. She attributes her success to Grenfell's social/cultural studies program. "This well-rounded degree taught me invaluable research, communication, and critical thinking skills that have opened many doors for me."

Water, forests, oil and gas: are we using our planet’s resources responsibly? How can we better manage these precious renewable and non-renewable resources, which, more often than not, we are guilty of taking for granted? Grenfell College’s bachelor of resource management in sustainable resource management will equip you to become a leader in this developing field.
THROUGH YOUR STUDIES YOU WILL MELD ENVIRONMENTAL THEORY WITH EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES.
As a graduate, you will be prepared for a wide variety of careers including resource management in the public service or private industry, environmental policy development, ecological restoration and domestic and international governmental and non-governmental organizations. Or, if you wish to continue on with advanced studies in related fields, you might like to investigate disciplines such as geography, marine studies, environmental planning, oil and gas studies, or environmental law.
Erica Noseworthy, Class of 2011
For the bachelor of resource management degree, you will be required to complete 120 credit hours, including courses in disciplines such as biology, chemistry, economics, environmental studies, geography and statistics. Sustainable resource management courses focus on areas such as marine and terrestrial environments, industry-specific approaches, environmental planning and management, biodiversity, remote sensing and image interpretation, environmental law and renewable and non-renewable energy resources. A fourth-year research seminar will allow you to focus specifically on select resource management topics. The seminars are presented on current research and environmental issues by faculty, students and guest lecturers from universities, government and industry. An independent research project will require you to carry out an approved project on a topic in sustainable resource management. You will be expected to prepare a major paper under the supervision of a faculty member, including a systematic literature review and independent research. This approach has been lauded as excellent preparation for master’s- and PhD-level research.
Erica Noseworthy chose Grenfell’s sustainable resource management program because she wanted to learn more about observing, respecting and managing the earth and its resources. “The instruction I’ve received so far has been incredible,” said Erica, who hails from Corner Brook. “My professors have greatly enhanced my ability to apply resource management techniques to everyday life.” She added that Grenfell’s small class sizes allow students to get to know their professors and to pursue courses that are active and engaging. “Thanks to Grenfell’s proactive faculty and its bachelor of resource management degree, I have had opportunities to work in the field, observing resource-based industries in the Corner Brook area.”
