The Forest Management & Ecology major is offered through the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Science (NRES). The curriculum provides a solid, multidisciplinary foundation for science-based decision making in natural resource management.
Students will acquire a strong background in the basic sciences (e.g., biology, chemistry, and mathematics) as well as a strong background in courses addressing critical issues in vegetation ecology and management, sustainability and restoration of forest resources, watershed integrity, wildlife habitat, forage and wood production, and conservation of natural ecosystems. This major is designed for those students interested in pursuing careers that are focused on the ecology and management of forest resources. Course-work will develop those skills students need to determine and evaluate the impact of resource management activities on natural resource ecosystems.
