Our mission in the Sustainable Resources Management Department is to advance our understanding of current environmental issues through cutting edge research, education, and outreach, with a special focus on sustainably managing renewable, natural and constructed resources, including energy, forests, recreation, soils, water, and building materials, to provide short- and long-term benefits with and for people. With a group of internationally known faculty, we address these issues both locally and nationally, across a range of scales through both applied and fundamental research, technology transfer and teaching.
Students may pursue a master of science (M.S.), master of professional studies (M.P.S.), or doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) in Forest Resources Management, in one of several areas of study.
The Master of Professional Studies graduate degree program enables students to integrate knowledge and expertise drawn from both the natural and social sciences, and to apply their knowledge to solve practical forest and natural resources management problems. The primary focus of the program is to provide an opportunity for graduates coming from related academic backgrounds with baccalaureates to gain a professional education in forestry. As such, the program is designed to be the first professional degree in forest and natural resources management. Graduates will successfully function as professional managers on multi-disciplinary forest and natural resources management teams and respond to the challenges related to the sustainable management of local, regional and global resources.
