Natural Resources Graduate Degree

The M.S. program in Natural Resources is intended to provide graduate training in traditional disciplines, as well as flexibility for training in the interdisciplinary aspects of natural resources. The program includes options in Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences (ENRS), Forestry, Watershed and Wildland Sciences (FWWS), Wildlife, and Fisheries.

The ENRS option of the Natural Resources graduate program is oriented toward ecological restoration, environmental analysis and land use planning, recreational uses of natural resources, and application of spatial analysis technologies including GIS and remote sensing.

The M.S. curriculum requires completion of a thesis as part of the student’s training for research in management of natural resources. Candidates for the degree are required to consult with an appropriate faculty committee and prepare individual programs of study which must be approved by the committee. Information about the M.S. in Natural Resources programs, including minimum entrance requirements can be found in the HSU Catalog.  For information specifically about the Natural Resources graduate program view the Natural Resources Graduate Program Brochure.
