Engaged, active learning is at the foundation of a rigorous curriculum that brings together extensive field training with conceptual knowledge to prepare the next generation of forest resource managers. In the Department of Forest Resources, the forest is our classroom! The Bachelor of Science in Natural Resource Management uses applied learning methods to prepare students with interdisciplinary knowledge, training, and critical thinking skills required to analyze and understand forest management and for success in effectively conserving forests and other natural resources.
