The forest and natural resources management programs prepare students for work with public and private sector organizations and consultancies and for further professional or scientific study at the graduate level. Students develop professional skills, which employers look for in new employees:
These skills are best developed by a broad base in the social sciences and humanities, communication, the natural sciences, and quantitative and qualitative methods. The majority of coursework taken during the first two years (lower division) is in these basics. Students are required to complete general education requirements and a professional core. Forest resources management students may concentrate some of their technical electives. Natural resources management majors have a ready opportunity to earn a minor in an area of disciplinary interest.
High quality learning opportunities are offered at the Associate, Bachelor, Master, and Doctor of Philosophy levels. Students are encouraged to think critically, synthesize knowledge, communicate effectively, and use technology responsibly. As part of our education mission, we offer a professionally accredited undergraduate Forest Resources Management degree program.
Students may follow one of three paths to enter and complete an undergraduate degree program:
