Forestry Transfer Track
With an abundance of public and private forest lands, Northwest Montana is an ideal place to study forestry. FVCCs Forestry Transfer Track emphasizes opportunities to observe field management situations and interact with practicing professional foresters. Many of the courses include field components and utilize advanced technology such as Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
Through a formal transfer agreement between FVCC and UM-Missoula, students who intend to seek a career in Forestry can complete most of the first two pre-professional years of study at FVCC to ready themselves for the program at The University of Montana- Missoula. Students who transfer and graduate from the University of Montanas College of Forestry and Conservation are prepared for professional positions as forest and land managers with responsibilities ranging from the production of forest-based goods to recreation, timber, water, range and wildlife issues.
