About the NRM Program

Natural Resource Management is an interdisciplinary program at NDSU bringing together a number of departments in the common goal of providing course work experience in the general areas of environmental problem solving.

The Natural Resources Management Interdisciplinary Program (NRM) at North Dakota State University prepares students for careers that require an understanding of the social, biological and physical aspects of managing natural resources including air, water, soils, forests, land and wildlife. Because it emphasizes problem solving, the program prepares students to deal with problems and issues that reach beyond a single discipline or subject area.

NRM is a management-oriented program that integrates the social, physical and biological aspects of natural resources into one program of study. The program draws upon the courses and resources of four NDSU colleges: College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources; College of Science and Mathematics; College of Engineering and Architecture; and College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. An undergraduate program leading to a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree, and graduate programs leading to a Professional Degree (MNRM),  Master of Science (MS) degree and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree.

Through the NRM Program, students acquire a broad background in natural resources, as well as in-depth study in one or two specific areas. The program exposes students to many disciplines: exactly the interdisciplinary approach society must take if it is to find solutions to complex environmental problems.
