Resource Conservation

Address Real World Environmental Challenges

Gain the knowledge and skills to tackle a diversity of natural resource and conservation challenges. Resource Conservation integrates classroom learning with hands-on field experiences and internships to prepare you for a range of conservation professions. You develop a foundation in conservation science and then focus on the issues and topics you’re most passionate about.

You can emphasize climate and environmental change, community conservation, ecology, environmental policy, international conservation, rangeland management and ecology, water resources, wilderness studies, or wildland fire management, or design your own emphasis working with faculty advisors.
