Students interested in a career in forestry or related fields such as environmental resources, fisheries, and wildlife can receive excellent preparation for a Bachelor of Science in Forest Resources (B.S.F.R.) through the pre-forestry program. The pre-forestry program is a two-year track that gives the student a foundation in the biological, physical, and social sciences, as well as the humanities. Following completion of the pre-forestry program, students transfer to a forestry school for completion of the B.S.F.R. degree. Most West Georgia pre-forestry students transfer to the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources at the University of Georgia. The Department of Biology offers advising for pre-forestry students.
