" Our goal is to increase the students appreciation for Natural Resources and help the public understand the link between informed decision making and the capacity to sustain and conserve natural resources."
The Natural Resources Department (formerly the Forestry Department) within the Technical Education Area has a new major and certificate in Natural Resources that recognizes the change in emphasis in the natural resources job market. The major and certificate reflect the increased interest of students and the public in natural resource issues. The curriculum provides a broad foundation for a wide range of career choices and continuing education for students who desire to transfer to other institutions to complete their undergraduate work in natural resources. The 20-unit core curriculum for both the major and the certificate provide the minimum education qualifications for students wishing to enter the job market in natural resources related technical jobs in both the state and federal government after two years of Higher Education.
The heart of the degree program is the recognized need for the student to take a wide range of academic training. Students will take various course offerings in Biological Sciences, Computer Information Sciences, and Physical Sciences along with preparation in verbal and written communicative skills.
