Program Overview

The Habitat Management option is focused on land management, which is the focus of rangeland sciences. This option offers something not offered in the Fisheries and Wildlife or Natural Resources programs – how to analyze and manage the complex ecology of an area for multi-species habitats in the face of disturbance and multiple uses. Graduates in this option may pursue career paths with organizations similar to those in the default option (Sustainable Rangeland Ecosystem Stewardship), but this option offers additional expertise in analyzing and managing habitat.
