The Forestry, Ecology and Wildlife Program (FEWP), within the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences (BES), offers a Bachelor of Science Degree in Forestry, with degree options in Forest Science and Forest Management. Both degree options are accredited and rigorously prepare students for professional careers in forestry. FEWP offers formal minors in Wildlife Biology and Fisheries; a minor in GIS/Remote sensing is also offered through BES.
Forest Management Option is designed to prepare students for employment in forestry management positions upon graduation; the curriculum contains a limited number of electives (7 hours). The Forest Science Option is more flexible, including 11 hours of forestry electives and 7 hours of free electives. Students choosing this option have the flexibility to specialize in a variety of areas, which can expand career choice opportunities. Additionally, the flexibility in the Forest Science option makes it ideal for students interested in adding a minor or preparing for graduate studies. Students who choose the Forest Science Option can select one of five specialty tracks: Wildlife, Ecology, Forest Business, Remote Sensing / Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or Tailor-Your-Own. Each track contains 15-18 hours of coursework associated with a specialty; the Tailor-Your-Own track provides students the opportunity to develop their own specialty track. Other minors of relevance to the forestry profession include Criminal Justice and Business Administration both available at AAMU.
