Professional Land & Resource Management Program
Educating Tomorrow's Land Professionals for Achievable Energy Independence, Capitalist Economic Growth and Scientifically Informed Environmental Stewardship!
The Professional Land & Resource Management Program, or PLRM, is a relatively new program at Western State Colorado University, initiating the curriculum in January 2008. It is housed in WSCU's business program, and is a multi-disciplinary emphasis that draws on some of the most interesting and challenging courses across several programs. The degree program was developed with direct cooperation of a variety of industry professionals with the shared goal of graduating the most prepared land management students in the country.
Our added goal was that these students would be educated across the disciplines of oil, gas, and mining mineral management as well as real estate surface, water and environmental land management.
We believe with confidence this goal has been achieved, as evidenced by the caliber of students you will find highlighted in this site. You, too, will leave the program with a highly respected and sought after degree by industry.
