College of Agriculture and Life Sciences: Forestry

As a forestry major you will acquire an understanding of the forest ecosystem; your coursework will include plant identification, resource evaluation, forest economics, natural resource management, and sustainable forest systems. Forestry includes exposure to a variety of systems including public and private lands, urban systems, biodiversity and sustainability, and agroforestry. Faculty work closely with students; experiences include field trips, hands-on labs, and optional research experience, which allows you to work directly with faculty. As part of your curriculum you participate in a 16-day, off-campus camp experience held at one of several locations across the country. This experience introduces you to practical techniques and exposes you to new landscapes and cultural circumstances.
