The forestry program at Ohio State provides a balanced, integrated program of teaching, research, and service with specific strengths in forest biology, management, and reclamation. The program's goal is to educate professional forest managers who can think critically and integrate ecological principles within sociopolitical frameworks. The forestry curriculum:
- combines an intensive liberal arts core with a comprehensive professional forestry major;
- integrates social, biological, and applied sciences through interdisciplinary courses; and
- emphasizes private, nonindustrial forest land management.
