Integrated Natural Resources
Managing natural resources is a challenging and deeply rewarding career path, attractive to scientists, recreationists and hunters, and conservationists alike. The fundamental objective of the Integrated Natural Resources option of the MNR program is to integrate and scale various perspectives — ecological, human dimensions, planning, policy and law, and practical tools — into a broad and practical view of natural resources. This unique professional degree is accessible to students of diverse academic backgrounds and will help graduates develop credentials and skills to engage in effective, adaptive conservation of natural resources for the future.

**Students at the University of Idaho taking online courses are charged resident tuition provided they only register for online courses (this includes 500, 599, and 600 research credits). Registering for a non-online course will result in non-resident fees being charged for that and all future courses. A web fee ($35) per credit will be charged for all online courses. Additional course fees may apply. Distance education courses offered via Engineering Outreach have an additional production fee.
