CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — In 2018, the University of Wyoming plans to offer a degree in natural resources, recreation and tourism.

Doug Wachob is the interim dean at the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources.

Wachob says he believes that no other state in the country offers the same combination of business, human dimensions, natural resources and recreation.

The degree is still in the concept and planning phase. It won’t be official until it is reviewed by the faculty Senate and approved by the dean, provost and UW board of trustees.

The university already offers programs to help feed other industries in Wyoming, from education to energy.

Wachob says it’s a logical extension to train students to work in the state’s second largest industry.
