Thanks for visiting the School of Forestry & Natural Resources
The School of Forestry & Natural Resources offers majors in Natural Resources Management and Land Surveying. The Natural Resources Management major includes a choice of five options: Forestry, Wildlife Management & Conservation, Geospatial Science, Communications in Natural Resources, and Environmental Science. The School also offers a 2-year Associate of Science degree in Land Surveying Technology and a Master of Science in Forest Resources. Generous supporters of the School have provided for more than 35 fully endowed student scholarships.
The School is located in the Henry H. Chamberlain Forest Resources Complex and the George H. Clippert Forest Resources Annex. These facilities combine for 45,000 sq. ft. of new and renovated teaching and laboratory facilities, and include 2 computer laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and software. Additionally, 1,400 acres of university-owned forest land dedicated to teaching and learning is available for abundant hands-on, outdoor learning experiences.
The School of Forestry & Natural Resources supports several vibrant student organizations, including Xi Sigma Pi (an academic honor society), student chapters of the Society of American Foresters and The Wildlife Society, the Forestry Club, the Spatial Information Systems Club, and the SFNR Graduate Student Organization.
The School faculty is composed of highly-regarded, nationally renowned educators and scientists, including several endowed chairs and professorships. These faculty also have appointments with the Arkansas Forest Resources Center, a University of Arkansas Center of Excellence, which provides an umbrella for all the University of Arkansas's activities in forest-based natural resources research and extension. While the Center’s programs range state-wide, it is headquartered at the School of Forestry & Natural Resources on the University of Arkansas at Monticello campus.
