We are looking for students who share our passion for forests, wildlife, and other natural resources, and who wish to learn how to manage them for future generations.

The forestry major is a professional degree program and is the only program in Kentucky accredited by the Society of American Foresters.

Our students come from all across Kentucky, as well as several neighboring states, but one thing that unites them is a love for the outdoors. Whether they like to hunt and fish or simply hike in the woods, our students have found a place they can get a college degree that will lead to many different outdoor careers, and pursue their passion at the same time.

Our classes cover topics like forestry, wildlife, water, fire, forest economics, forest products, and GIS/GPS. We teach land-management techniques using the latest technologies and because many of our classes are actually conducted outdoors, our motto is “small classes, BIG classrooms”.
