1. FES 251 and FOR 441 have been moved to the appropriate locations.

2. Crosslisted courses have been added.

3. I have removed FES 356 from the proposal. This class is being dropped (proposal 95825).

4. CEOAS is doing a complete revamp of their course offerings and will be converting many of their GEO courses to GEOG.
Based on information recieved from Julia Jones in CEOAS I have replaced:
- GEO 350 with GEOG 331 (proposal 96297).
- GEO 444 with GEOG 480 (proposal 96307).
- GEO/SOIL 335 with GEOG 340 (proposal 96298).
- GEO 420 with GEOG 430 (proposal 96788).
- GEO 301 with GEOG 201 (proposal 96263).
- GEO 360 with GEOG 370 (proposal 96301).
- GEO 465 with GEOG 360 (proposal 96299).

(from Nicole Kent)
Richard referred me to Prem Matthew and I spoke to him on the phone. Given that we are sunsetting the RRM curriculum and ramping TRAL up for fall ’17, he is less concerned about requiring us to redo the learning outcomes. He said he’d relay that to Richard, and I think that means that we will not need to fulfill this request after all.

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 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, Forestry Management, Horticulture, Leadership, Natural Resources, Philosophy, Rangeland Ecology and Management, Soil Science, and Resource Economics.  Use of a different minor requires approval by the department head.

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 five options are only available to students majoring in Recreation Resource Management:

  1. Cultural Resource Management
  2. Environmental Resource Interpretation
  3. Law Enforcement
  4. Public Policy
  5. Resource Planning

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