Bachelor of Science in
Recreation Resource Management

The Recreation Resource Management major prepares students for careers in managing outdoor recreation settings, such as public forests and rangelands, state and national parks, and wilderness areas; working in visitor centers or interpretive facilities; and working in related tourism and recreation businesses. Because these jobs require an understanding of both the land itself and the people who visit these areas, the major offers a solid foundation in both the biological and social sciences.
