Total Credits: Most majors required at least 180 credits to earn a degree. Forest Engineering requires 192 and the double-degree in Forest-Civil Engineering requires at least 237 credits.
Types of Courses:
Students majoring in Forest Engineering; Forest-Civil Engineering; Forestry; Renewable Materials; and Tourism, Recreation & Adventure Leadership must complete six months of work experience related to their degree prior to graduation. Natural Resources majors do not have a work experience requirement but are encouraged to seek out internship and work experiences. Experience can be paid or unpaid, part-time or full-time, volunteer or in a hired position.
One month of work = 150 hours
