The natural resource conservation (NRC) major enables students to tailor a curriculum that suits their interests and career goals. Working with a faculty advisor, students can elect to focus their curriculum on any number of natural resource fields. Students preparing for advanced degrees in natural resources often elect to complete a broad, interdisciplinary program. All NRC majors are required to complete eight core courses that span and integrate across forest, wildlife, fisheries, and aquatic resources, including bio-physical and socio-economic domains. These courses embrace conservation and production objectives and span local to global scales. They stress the complexities in achieving social, environmental and economic sustainability, develop critical thinking skills, create significant and valuable field experience, and provide the tools needed for graduates to manage, conserve and educate people about natural resources.
