College of Natural Resources
The College of Natural Resources delivers inclusive and innovative education, research and engagement that empowers our students to better our planet, communities, industries and economy. As one of the top colleges in the nation for studying natural resources and conservation, we offer a comprehensive educational experience that brings together science, technology, policy and people. All of our students, regardless of major, participate in hands-on learning experiences. In-the-field training, internships, co-ops, study abroad and undergraduate research prepare our students to graduate with the technical expertise and real-world experience employers seek.
Career opportunities in natural resources are broad and diverse and touch every aspect of how we interact with our planet, sustainably utilize the natural resources available to us, and keep our communities healthy and thriving. Our students go on to work with wildlife, shape environmental policies, manage land for timber, sustainably engineer everyday products from natural resources, ensure clean water, create recreation and tourism opportunities in local communities, lead athletic programs, and more.
One of the smaller colleges at NC State, the College of Natural Resources is a close-knit community where students enjoy reduced class size and direct access to faculty and staff support — from application to graduation. As an intimate community in a large university, we’re proud to offer our students the best of both worlds.
What sets us apart:
- Our values of equity and inclusion, community, collaboration, innovation, and sustainability guide us in all we do.
- $950,000+ in undergraduate scholarships awarded annually.
- 90,000 acres of college-owned forest land serve as our outdoor classroom.
- 100% of students graduate with hands-on experience.
- Major or interest-related clubs and leadership programs provide students with both community and experience.
- The Ronald and Dale Terry Student Assistance and Enrichment Fund provides students with funding to pursue undergraduate research, study abroad, internships and professional development opportunities.
