Welcome to Maasai Mara University School of Tourism & Natural Resource Management.

Dr. W. M. Maghenda, Phd.

Dean School of Tourism & Natural Resource Management

The School of Tourism and Natural Resources Management (ST&NRM) is currently running three Masters Programmes (Environmental Studies, Wildlife and Tourism Management) and four Bachelor of Science programs (Wildlife, Tourism, Environmental Studies and Forestry). The school also offers Diploma and Certificate in Wildlife and Tourism Management. Programs of study focus on preparing students for careers in management and research with environmental science and natural resource agencies, tourism operations and organizations that require fundamental knowledge about the science, planning and sustainable management of natural systems. To meet this goal, the school is in the process of preparing new programs in Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management (PRTM), Restoration Ecology (RE), Environmental Conflict Management (ECM) and Range Management (RM). Community outreach is one of our primary commitments and our focus is to engage local communities so that they can benefit from conservation, economic development and education. To accomplish this, the ST&NRM in collaboration with other Schools in the University have established a Resource/Outreach Centre through which we are working closely with local groups to establish community businesses, provide training and marketing assistance, and develop compatible economic activities which will enhance the community’s livelihood whilst at the same time maintain the integrity of the environment. Maasai Mara University and particularly the ST&NRM recognize the need to develop partnerships with Private, International and local Institutions so as to strengthen the University College’s academic, research, community services and application of knowledge to societal needs and issues. To this end, the ST&NRM has developed collaboration with Clemson University in the areas of Park, Recreation and Tourism Management and is working on developing collaboration with Northern Arizona University in Forestry and University of Maryland in wildlife and Environmental Education. These collaborations provide opportunities for staff exchange and for our students to travel abroad for Graduate Studies.
