Park and Natural Resource Management - Minor

The Department of Recreation, Park and Tourism Sciences offers a minor in Park and Natural Resource Management as a supplement to other majors.  The minor focuses on management of natural and cultural resources associated with conserving parks and other protected areas. Land managers and related professionals integrate concepts in the bio-environmental sciences, social and behavioral sciences, and policy and administrative decision-making. Students with experience in this field look forward to careers with both public and private employers in the recreation, park, and tourism fields, including state and federal agencies and private enterprises, non-profit organizations, youth camps, and environmental education programs.
