If you're interested in protecting wildlife habitat and the environment while learning how to meet and manage the ever-growing demand for wood products, clean water, outdoor recreation and scenic beauty, then a minor in natural resources management is right for you.
The minor in natural resources management, which is offered by the College of Arts and Sciences, is available to students majoring in either the College of Arts and Sciences or the Culverhouse College of Commerce and Business Administration at The University of Alabama. The natural resources management minor is 26 credit hours and includes course work in biological sciences, geography, zoology, hydrogeology, freshwater studies, and dendrology.
The focus of the natural resources minor is practice driven. In addition to classroom lectures and labs, students will have hands-on experiences, go on field trips, and visit Tanglewood-- a 480-acre inland biological station managed by the Department of Biological Sciences. These types of learning situations will help supplement the students' understanding of ecological systems as sustainable resources.
