In an era when technology, culture and skill influence the values behind our recreation choices, Land Management today demands an understanding of those values and the conflicts they sometimes produce.
Land Management helps prepare you for careers with state and national agencies that oversee public lands. The concentration develops your ability to balance best-practice land use and best interests of people who use the land for recreation.
Whether you’re rangering at Gates of the Arctic National Park or just starting out on a trail crew, your concentration in Land Management deepens your understanding of land as a public resource.
