The undergraduate certificate in Public Lands Management explores the origins of national parks, forests, and refuges, and studies the tools and techniques used by land managers to provide ecosystem services to the public. These tools help you to develop an understanding of regulatory and policy issues, the use of remote sensing and geographic information systems technology, and the application of land preservation and protection strategies. Students will examine fundamental land use controls such as zoning, land use policy, and contemporary management techniques. Knowledge gained in this certificate is helpful in the forestry, land conservation, and land management fields.
