Program Overview

The minor in Forestry serves as a concentrated study, beyond a student's primary major, that allows students to explore their interest in forest ecology and management, and to build skills that can help launch a career in forest conservation.

Students interested in a minor in Forestry must complete a minimum of 5 courses and 20 credits with a grade of C- or better. Pass/Fail courses may not be used for the minor. Up to 8 credits can be used to satisfy both major and minor requirements.
