Natural Resources Management Associate Degree can be obtained completely ONLINE
through selection of appropriate classes.
The Natural Resources Management Associate Degree in Applied Science program is designed to prepare students for a career in the management and protection of natural resources. Success in this field requires the technician to have a broad background in the biological and agricultural sciences. Successful graduates will know the proper use, development, conservation, and management of wildlife, wetlands, and woodlands and the ecosystems that support them.
Students can take the entire program online, but those looking for hands-on experiential learning can take the Technicians Skills courses. This series of classes require hands-on labs held at select locations throughout the semester. The student should discuss these options with their academic advisor at the beginning of the program of study.
Career opportunities exist with landowners; local, state, and federal agencies; and private industry engaged in the development and wise stewardship of natural resources. Students in this program have flexible education options for transfer to four-year degree programs and entry directly into the field as technicians.
