Studying forestry helps students learn to address natural resource, environmental and energy issues through coursework in the biological and social sciences. Outside the classroom, students bolster their education through study abroad programs, independent studies and professional internships.

Foresters are specialized environmental scientists who address societal issues such as carbon sequestration, biofuel production, wood products manufacturing, habitat management, recreational lands management, and the development of a sustainable, biologically based economy.

Our internationally renowned faculty guide students through active learning, preparing them to be leaders and stewards in sustainable forest management. The forestry major is accredited by the Society of American Foresters.
