The School of Renewable Natural Resources offers a Graduate education to students who wish to discover the natural world and ways to improve the management of renewable resources, protect biodiversity, and promote conservation of diverse ecosystems. Two Graduate curricula (Masters and Ph.D.) are available that provide students with advanced education in four areas of concentration: fisheries and aquaculture, forestry and forest resources, forest products, or wildlife.
A new Graduate Minor has also been approved: "Graduate Minor in Interdepartmental Studies in Wetland Ecology and Restoration". The goal of this minor is to instill in students a strong understanding of concepts in wetland ecology and restoration as well as to demonstrate the multidisciplinary nature of wetland ecology and restoration. This minor is intended for graduate students whose thesis or dissertation( in any of the areas or concentration) research addresses some aspect of wetland ecology or restoration. An interdepartmental wetland approach encourages graduate students to complete wetland courses within their department as well as wetland courses from other departments. Such mixing benefits students and faculty.
Admission to the LSU Graduate School is necessary before consideration for entrance into the Graduate Program in the School of Renewable Natural Resources. Information on admissions, applications, fees, tuition, and deadlines is available on the LSU Graduate School Propective Students website.
