Programme Structure

The forest and natural resource management curriculum prepares students to plan, implement, and research the management, protection, and sustainable use of forest and related natural resources and environments, including vegetation, timber, water, wildlife, recreation, and aesthetic resources. The curriculum provides a unique integration of the physical, biological, and social sciences with managerial sciences and policy, field skill development, and technologies for measuring and monitoring natural resources for ecological, economic, and social benefits. 
Students are also trained in problem solving approaches to address specific local, regional, and global issues. Students select one of three tracks:
