Natural Resources


Students who graduate with a BS degree in Natural Resources from OSU should be able to integrate technical field or laboratory skills with analytical skills to solve critical natural resource problems. The curriculum is designed to help students acquire knowledge about a range of natural resource issues, work in interdisciplinary teams, and deal with social and political aspects of resource management.

Students acquire knowledge in biophysical and social sciences, math, and statistics. They will learn holistic resource management approaches that emphasize the interconnectedness of humans and the environment. In addition, students will develop a toolbox of resource management skills such as communication, collaboration, analysis, assessment, and planning. They explore conservation and management of key resources which include fish and wildlife, land and water resources, and a wide range of ecosystems from forests to rangelands. Students develop disciplinary depth in a focused area through a required specialty option, choosing from a number of pre-approved options, or creating an individualized (student designed) specialty option.

The Natural Resources major is also available at the OSU-Cascades Campus in Bend, the OSU Agricultural Program at Eastern Oregon University, and through the OSU Extended Campus program. The Natural Resources major is an interdisciplinary program administered by the College of Forestry.

Also available at OSU-Cascades, Eastern Oregon University, and via Ecampus.
