UI offering more outdoor career options

| July 23, 2020 1:00 AM

Students who want to learn in Idaho’s beautiful outdoors will have the chance this fall to enroll in online or in-person classes.

Through the University of Idaho’s College of Natural Resources students can learn about forestry, fisheries, range science, wildlife, fire and more. And its doors are open this fall for new students in Moscow, or distance learning through one of its nationally accredited online programs: https://www.uidaho.edu/cnr/natural-resources-online.

For more than 100 years, the College of Natural Resources has provided a unique level of hands-on learning for undergraduate and graduate students through educational and research trips to the school forest, nursery and surrounding areas and research and field work in places such as Taylor Wilderness Research Station in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness and at the McCall Outdoor Science School.

CNR added online courses this spring in response to the coronavirus pandemic and is well-positioned to deliver coursework this fall, regardless of shifting circumstances.

The college offers traditional in-person graduate and undergraduate learning, online degrees as well as educational credits for professionals already working in the field.
