INTRODUCTION

Master of Science in Land Resources Management is an interdisciplinary graduate program for students who wish to broaden their knowledge of land and natural resources or who seek special education in technical, social, or management aspects of land. The broad construal of land resources in this program is based on the idea that land includes all physical elements in the wealth of a nation bestowed by nature such as climate, forests, wetlands, fields, rangelands, minerals, mountains, lakes, streams, seas, plants and animals and is critical to the economic, social and cultural development of a nation.
