Wise use and management of our precious natural resources is a critical issue of today and one in which we are all stakeholders. The health of our environment including the availability of clean water and air, sustainable food production, and abundant fish and wildlife resources, will depend on decisions made by our natural resources managers.
The degree in Natural Resources Ecology and Conservation provides students with a broad background in natural resources management and conservation with specific emphasis in four areas: ecology, wildlife & fisheries management, conservation biology, and environmental science. Students completing this program will be prepared for graduate education or for employment with governmental and private agencies that are directly involved in managing our natural resources.
