Forests in the fall at Baskett Wildlife Research and Education Center.

The Natural Resource Science and Management degree addresses the science, art, and craft of creating, managing, using, conserving, and repairing natural and human-dominated ecosystems, in a sustainable manner, to meet desired societal goals.  The degree has elements that belong to the biological, physical, social, political and managerial sciences that are applied to conserving plant and animal species in forests, grasslands, rivers and streams, and urban areas.  The degree also develops students’ skills in working with diverse groups of people.  Students with degrees in Natural Resource Science and Management work as fisheries biologists, foresters, interpreters, naturalists, and wildlife biologists for state and federal agencies, nature centers and museums, and consulting firms.
