Natural Resource Conservation and Management Program
The Natural Resource Conservation and Management (NRCM) Program offers you a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Natural Resource Conservation and Management with concentrations in forest resources and soil and water conservation and a minor course of study.

Located in the heart of the southern Appalachians and surrounded by 6,000-foot peaks, national forests, national parks, and some of the highest biological diversity in the world, our program boasts a natural laboratory for hands-on teaching and learning. Few places can match Western Carolina's location for studying the protection and wise use of our natural resources.

Our graduates gain employment with state and federal forest and wildlife management agencies, conservation organizations, forestry consulting firms, soil and water conservation districts, environmental consulting firms, and many other organizations.
