The Bachelor of Science in Forestry offers the General Forestry emphasis to provide students with the opportunity to specialize in one of a variety of career fields including, Forest Fire Management, Range Management, Spatial Science, and Urban Forestry.
The General Forestry degree plan is built upon the framework of the Society of American Foresters accredited Forestry Core. Included in that core is a six semester-hour Field Station that each Forestry student attends after completing their 300 level (Junior) courses.
