Students interested in forestry may take their first two years of coursework at NKU and then finish work for the bachelor’s degree in forestry at a forestry school. Realizing that many students do not go on to forestry school for one reason or another, the department recommends that students follow a B.S. or B.A. track. By so doing, it is likely that little if any credit will be lost if a change of direction does occur. In addition to pre-professional requirements, students will have to complete general education requirements for the school they will attend.
At the earliest opportunity, students should schedule an appointment with an advisor and consult the catalogs or websites of any forestry schools that they plan to consider. The University of Kentucky website is www.ca.uky.edu/forestry. The curriculum plan for general biology may be used as a guide for planning the first year of coursework.
