Rangeland Science Minor

Rangeland science is about the study and sustainable management of landscapes across a variety of biomes from the very arid such as deserts to the moderately mesic such as grasslands. Students working in rangeland ecosystems will gain knowledge and skills to bolster their career success.

Note: Completion of the Rangeland Ecology and Management minor alone does not qualify students for rangeland conservationist positions with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
