SUMMARY: This CHANGE Undergraduate Option seeks to update the requirements for this course.

CIP 030506 has been added to the proposal.

APA has:
1) check FES 485 status. Proposal 98974 requests all cross listed courses be removed. This proposal was sent back by BCC and is waiting for corrections.
2) added "(Pending Approval)" in two locations rather than add cross listed courses and then create another Change proposal to remove cross listing.
3) Added cross listed "FW" to FES 445.
4) Added "^" to FOR 460

All Components are met per the Faculty Senate Curriculum Council guidelines.

Program Information

Program Title: Forest Restoration and Fire 
CIP Code: 030506
College/Department or College/School: College of Forestry / Forest Engineering, Resources and Management 

Program Type: Undergraduate Option 
Associated Major: Forestry - BS, HBS 
Original Program: Forest Restoration and Fire 
Description: Updated 

Disturbance processes, such as wildland fire, insect or disease outbreak, landslide, and windthrow, are important considerations in any actively managed forest, regardless of the specific management objective. The Forest Restoration and Fire option prepares students to understand, manage, mitigate and/or use forest disturbance processes, especially wildland fire, as part of a forest management plan.
