PROFESSOR CRAIG T. HOUGHTON, in charge, Penn State Mont Alto, Penn State University Park

The objectives of the major are to train forestry field personnel in the technical aspects of evaluating, managing, and protecting forest resources. Practicums held in the Michaux State Forest, adjacent to Penn State Mont Alto, stress field applications of classroom theory. Both written and oral communication skills are stressed in all courses. Graduates of the program are employed by businesses including federal and state timber management and recreation programs, urban tree service companies, pulp and paper manufacturers, surveying and landscaping firms, power companies, and other businesses requiring personnel skilled in field data-gathering analysis and presentation.

Some graduates transfer their credits to bachelor�s degree programs such as business management, wildlife science, forest science, geology, leisure studies, and environmental resource management.

For the Associate in Science degree in Forest Technology, a minimum of 66 credits is required.
