Program Information

Program Title: Recreation Resource Management - BS, CRED, HBS 
CIP Code: 310101
College/Department or College/School: College of Forestry / Forest Ecosystems and Society 

Program Type: Undergraduate Major 
Description: Updated 

The BS in Recreation Resource Management prepares students to meet the challenges of providing quality outdoor recreation opportunities while maintaining the ecological integrity of natural resources. The curriculum produces students who understand recreation behavior, recreation planning and management, environmental interpretation, wilderness management, resource economics, communication, and resource analysis and policy. The Society of American Foresters-accredited curriculum provides a solid mix of physical and social sciences, resource management (including wildlife, range, and forestry), and quantitative methods.

Completion of an approved option or minor is required for the Recreation Resource Management degree. Declaration of the option or minor should be done by the end of the sophomore year. Courses for an option or minor are in addition to the core curriculum. Some courses may require prerequisites not included in the core curriculum. Choice of option or minor must be approved by an academic advisor.

Currently approved minors include Business and Entrepreneurship, Fisheries and Wildlife, Forest Management (27 credits required), Natural Resources, Philosophy, Rangeland Ecology and Management, and Resource Economics.

Courses required for an option may not count toward a minor. Students may not take an option and a minor from the same field of study.

The following nine options are only available to students majoring in Recreation Resource Management:

  1. Cultural Resource Management
  2. Environmental Resource Interpretation
  3. Forest Resources
  4. Law Enforcement
  5. Park Landscapes
  6. Public Policy
  7. Resource Planning
  8. Sociology
  9. Tourism

Students may work with an academic advisor to develop their own individualized option.
