The Natural Resources program of the Utah State University is an interdisciplinary degree designed for working natural resource professionals. Students take courses from all departments within the College of Natural Resources.


There are seven core areas in which students are required to take coursework: ecology, human dimensions, economics, policy, spatial technology, administration, and quantitative methods.

Their previous knowledge in a specific natural resources field is broadened by study in these other areas to help them understand the bigger picture of natural resources issues.
