Regional and Community Forestry
The purpose of the regional and community forestry (RCF) undergraduate degree program is to produce highly skilled and knowledgeable professionals with “career ready” skills in problem solving, critical thinking, and effective oral and written communication in the areas of urban forestry management and plant and social sciences essential to managing natural resources in rural and urban environments. Students will be qualified for immediate employment upon graduation or for advancement in several fields of study including horticulture, forestry, or natural resources sciences.
Students will complete multidisciplinary coursework during the program. An emphasis on internships with partners including state agencies, regional companies, and nonprofits will draw on interdisciplinary linkages within UNL, and will capitalize on strong partnerships with state agencies, nonprofits, and the private sector to enhance experiential learning opportunities.
