Natural Resource Management Program
The baccalaureate degree in Natural Resource Management provides students with the knowledge, analytical and practical skills, and decision-making competencies to protect and use effectively our renewable resources. Students receive instruction on ecosystem function, environmental assessment, geospatial analysis, and management. Further, the Program integrates course offerings from the Department of Science and Mathematics, Department of Business, and Department of Social Science. The degree encompasses general education, a Natural Resource Management core, six major areas and a block elective component. The six majors are Criminal Justice, Energy and Land Management, Environmental Science, Forest Technology and Land Surveying. The NRMT program was first offered in 2003.
The Natural Resource Management Program endows graduates with the knowledge, analytical and practical skills, and decision-making competencies to act as stewards of renewable resources. Students receive instruction on ecosystem function, environmental assessment and conservation of resources, and apply these competencies by means of project-based exercises. Graduates are prepared to manage natural resources based on educational excellence in basic and applied sciences.
The Natural Resource Management Program at Glenville State University seeks to lead undergraduate education, focusing on student success, workforce preparedness, and solutions to natural resource management issues.
