BROOKS, WALTER L.; DUBOSE, DAVID C.
TWO FACTORS LED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A TERMINAL PROGRAM TO PREPARE STUDENTS FOR EMPLOYMENT IN OCCUPATIONS RELATED TO THE USE AND CONSERVATION OF NATURAL RESOURCES--(1) THE CONSISTENTLY LARGE NUMBERS OF STUDENTS WHO ENROLLED IN TRANSFER PROGRAMS IN THESE FIELDS BUT WHO DID NOT CONTINUE BEYOND THE JUNIOR COLLEGE, AND (2) THE LOCATION OF THE COLLEGE IN AN AREA OF HIGH EMPLOYMENT AND INTEREST IN THESE FIELDS. A SURVEY REVEALED SIX JOBS FOR WHICH A GENERALIZED MAJOR IN NATURAL RESOURCES WOULD BE APPROPRIATE--(1) FORESTRY AIDE OR TECHNICIAN, (2) FISH AND WILDLIFE ASSISTANT, (3) FISH CULTURIST, (4) GAME WARDEN, (5) RANGE TECHNICIAN, AND (6) REFUGE FOREMAN. WITHIN THE PROGRAM, WHICH INCLUDES GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR THE AA DEGREE AND A 20-UNIT MAJOR IN NATURAL RESOURCES, THE STUDENT HAS A CHOICE OF SEVERAL SPECIALIZED OPTIONS.
