Training Needs for Future Managers of Resource Affairs
Abstract:The increasing complexity of resource management necessitates changes in the traditional education of foresters. Within the framework of a good general education, undergraduate schools should continue to provide the biological, physiological, and economic bases, with heavy emphasis on land capability as it relates to preservation, multiple use, and intensive production. In addition, some universities should establish new programs to provide a two-year master's degree in resource affairs. These programs would require a multidisciplinary staff and would include special seminars in resource economics, social and behavioral sciences, and policy processes; some work in solving real policy problems would also be required.
