Academic Programs

The Department of Land Resources offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Resource Management with six major areas which include Criminal Justice, Energy and Land Management, Environmental Science, Forest Technology, Land Surveying Technology and Wildlife Management.

Two associate degree programs, in Forest Technology and Land Surveying Technology, are also offered. Students completing these associate degree programs can matriculate seamlessly into the Natural Resource Management degree program. The associate degree programs, like the baccalaureate program, have active advisory committees comprised of representatives from government, business, and industry. These advisory bodies ensure that classes are continually updated and meet the needs of industry and government. Job opportunities remain strong for graduates of the three degree programs.

The department also offers a Certificate in Land Surveying and GIS. The certificate program requires 12 hours of relevant courses. The new Certificate in Geographic Information System (GIS) is a completely online program which requires 12 hours of geospatial technology courses. We also offer Certificate in Right of Way that requires 26 credits of traditional classroom and online courses in business communication, landman, land surveying and geospatial technology courses.

Students can also minor in Environmental Science and Natural Resource Management with 19-20 hours of additional courses in the discipline.
