The natural resources management (NRM) program at GMC is unique—it blends natural sciences with social and policy sciences, and introduces hands-on field methods. This includes a two-week field experience that covers forest inventory methods, wildlife monitoring, and recreation management. After four years, you’ll be qualified to enter a range of natural resource management employment options, and be prepared to pursue graduate study in fields such as natural resources, forestry, wildlife biology, recreation management, or public policy. Graduates are working in public agencies and private companies including the U.S. Forest Service, the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources and Landvest (a forest consulting firm).
