Penn State DuBois to offer minor in natural resources
DuBois – Baccalaureate students enrolled at Penn State DuBois can now elect to study toward a minor in natural resources, with the recent Penn State University approval of the 18-credit curriculum.
According to Robert Loeb, Director of Academic Affairs at Penn State DuBois, the opportunity to complete the Natural Resources minor with the baccalaureate in Liberal Arts and Sciences at DuBois will serve students of the Wildlife Technology program.
"The natural resources minor can complement majors in the liberal arts, earth sciences, and life sciences by providing an introduction to field techniques and technical writing," Loeb said.
According to Loeb, areas of specialized study can include but are not limited to: environmental assessment, forest and wetland evaluation and management, wildlife management. Professional opportunities include work in environmental monitoring, such as endangered species and wetland delineation, restoration of disturbed land, and management of forested lands and wildlife areas, he said.
Offering the minor at the DuBois campus provides additional educational opportunities, especially for the students who are “location bound” with family and work obligations, Loeb added.
