How to Apply

There’s never been a greater demand for forestry and environmental professionals. How we make sustainable use of our shared environment is key to many of the grand challenges our planet faces. When you come to the College of Natural Resources, you’ll learn how to solve those challenges and build a successful career.

In fact, we do more than educate students, we graduate leaders. Each year, undergraduates choose to study in the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources because of our outstanding faculty and our ability to deliver a practical education that combines theory and classroom instruction with hands-on fieldwork and real-world research.

Our degree programs focus on the interdisciplinary nature of solving complex environmental challenges. Our graduates enter the workforce or graduate or law school with a shared passion for the environment and an understanding of the interplay between science, people and business when it comes to the wise use of our planet’s resources.

Think you’ve found the right place for you? We’d love to have you with us.
