Forestry work involves the management and protection of forests and other natural areas, such as wildlife habitats, wetlands and parks. Foresters direct recreational activities and conservation efforts in both public and private forests.

Program Description

TCC offers courses that cover the first 2 years of a typical 4-year forestry program, as well as courses to develop skills needed for college-level courses.

Degree Options: Associate in Arts and Sciences degree (Option B)

Upon completion of this degree, students may transfer to the School of Forest Resources within the College of the Environment at the University of Washington.

Program Planning

Recommended Class Schedule: We suggest the following schedule of classes for students who wish to earn the Associate Degree in Arts and Sciences and then transfer to the UW School of Forest Resources.

Students interested in transferring to forestry at institutions other than the University of Washington are advised to meet with the forestry advisor of their chosen 4-year institution during their freshman year. Some institutions have specific admissions requirements that may differ from this program.
