Prospective Students

Because of our location and the surrounding physical environment, Humboldt State University has established a reputation for excellence in graduate programs in Biological, Environmental and Natural Resources Sciences. There are three graduate programs within the College of Natural Resources and Sciences with each offering unique curriculum(s): Biological Sciences (1 option), Environmental Systems (3 options) and Natural Resources (4 options).

While the College of Natural Resources and Sciences graduate options are designed to provide an in-depth understanding of your particular area of emphasis, they are also intended to develop an appreciation for the interdisciplinary character of biological, environmental and natural resource problems. Each candidate for the degree is required to consult with an appropriate faculty committee and to prepare an individualized program of study which must be approved by that committee.
