Major in Natural Resources Management (NRTN) - Associate Degree in Applied Science


64 Semester Hours

The Natural Resources Management Associate Degree in Applied Science program is designed to prepare students for a career in an exciting and expanding field. Success in this field requires the technician to have a broad background in the biological and agricultural sciences. This is achieved through a balance between classroom and outdoor learning activities. Graduates are trained in the proper use, development, conservation, and management of wildlife, wetlands, and woodlands. Emphasis is placed on maintaining good wildlife habitat.
 
Most classes are conducted at the Natural Resources Management Center, located at 735 Brewington Road, Sumter. This 105-acre outdoor laboratory includes agricultural fields, wooded and natural areas, and ponds, all of which are used for instructional purposes. Some courses required to complete this program are offered only during the day.

Career opportunities exist with landowners; local, state, and federal agencies; and private industry engaged in the development and wise stewardship of natural resources.
