Proposal

Proposal ID: 78514
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: June 3, 2009 2:29pm
Approval Date: July 7, 2009 9:02pm
Effective Term: Fall 2009
Justification:
ST 314 (3) and FE 314 (1) have been replaced with ST 351 (4) which is more applicable to forestry courses. FE 447 (3) replaces FE 449 as explained in proposal #78375 which is still pending. FE 448 replaces FE 450 as a WIC course more appropriately targeted to Forest Operations Management majors (proposal #3285, approved 2/27/2009.) Added BI 349 (3) as an alternate course for Global Issues Bac Core requirement to provide flexibility and an on-campus course.
Comments:
The Global Issues Bac Core requirement has been limited to address the Society of American Foresters accrediation criteria.

Program Information

Program Title: Forest Operations Management - BS, HBS 
CIP Code: 030506
College/Department or College/School: College of Forestry / Forest Engineering, Resources and Management 

Program Type: Undergraduate Major 
Description: Updated 

The Bachelor of Science in Forest Operations Management is designed as a professional degree that blends elements of the forest engineering and forest management degrees with business management and entrepreneurship. This unique new degree will prepare graduates to support the needs of an evolving forest sector in Oregon and globally.

This degree program is in collaboration with the College of Business. The 180-credit program includes a minor from the College of Business. More detailed information on the Business and Entrepreneurship minor can be found on the Web at http://catalog.oregonstate.edu/MinorDetail.aspx?minor=571&college=02.

In addition to the listed courses, all students are required to complete a total of six months of satisfactory employment in an area related to their major. This is usually accomplished by two or more summers of work, but it may include work during the academic year. Work performance and personal conduct are thoroughly appraised by the College of Forestry.

More detailed information on the curriculum and the current undergraduate advising guide can be found on the department’s Web page at http://ferm.forestry.oregonstate.edu/.
