Study with expert faculty
This natural resources management degree is a product of the Department of Forest and Rangeland Stewardship's rich history and long-standing reputation that has flourished at CSU since the turn of the 20th century. At the time, the university was responding to societal needs and pressures regarding the conservation and sustainable management of natural resources and the rising concerns for managing them. Those same concerns exist today, perhaps now more than ever.
Interdisciplinary faculty who have direct experience with the economic, social, political, and ecological impacts of land degradation bring real-world information to the program. Currently working on natural resource initiatives with federal, state, local, and nonprofit agency partners, our faculty are researchers who bring their inside perspective and first-hand knowledge to the classroom, preparing you to be a leader in the industry.
