Focus Area: Forestry
Most students interested in forestry have a strong interest in nature, ecology, and the wise use of natural resources. The Forestry focus area provides a solid foundation with courses in biology, chemistry, and math. After completing the recommended courses, you will be prepared to transfer to a four–year school to complete an advanced degree in a forestry area. Employment opportunities include a forestry technician, timber cruiser, urban or industrial forester, woodlands manager, boundary surveyor, wood and logging engineer, log–pulpwood buyer, or work in municipal, state, and federal parks.
