A conservation-focused program

Do you love the outdoors? Are you passionate about science and technology? Are you interested in conservation and other environmental issues?

The natural resources specialization draws upon multiple STEM disciplines, such as forestry, agriculture, biology, geography, geology and environmental science. Students in this unique program use cutting edge surveying and mapping technology, such as global positioning systems, laser rangefinders and drones. They complete exciting internships and participate in real-world research projects. 

And, most importantly, they graduate with a Bachelor of Science in geospatial science, plus the skills and experience they need to find a rewarding career.
