The master of natural resources is an interdisciplinary degree designed for working natural resource professionals. Students take courses from all departments within the College of Natural Resources. There are seven core areas in which students are required to take coursework: ecology, human dimensions, economics, policy, spatial technology, administration, and quantitative methods. The program was designed to give natural resource professionals the skills required to work as decision makers and managers in the natural resources. Their previous knowledge in a specific natural resources field is broadened by study in these other areas to help them understand the bigger picture of natural resources issues.

The Master of Natural Resources degree (MNR) is also available through short-courses approved for the program.
