you like the outdoors, right? then you’re going to love this place. northland college has a location like nowhere else on earth. we are surrounded by a million acres of forest and the largest freshwater lake in the world. these amazing natural resources are right outside our doors and serve as living laboratories and natural playgrounds.
expect to get out often as part of your classwork in natural resources. you’ll be working closely with faculty who will immerse you in the wildlife, fisheries, forests, wetlands, streams, and lakes of this northern ecosystem. you’ll acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to communicate effectively, manage resources, and solve problems.
classes are small enough for in-depth field activities, data analysis, and group projects such as developing a management plan. you will get the ecological, economic, policy, and management foundations necessary to use, protect, and enhance natural resources, preparing you for careers in government, tribal agencies, not-for-profit organizations, or the private sector and for graduate school.
