The department believes in ongoing evolution of its undergraduate curricula to keep current with changing student and professional needs as we begin in a new millennium. As a result of curricular revision in 2004, our undergraduate program offers an expanded array of educational opportunities to baccalaureate students that well-exemplifies the diversity of career opportunities in natural resource sciences. Our program offers a single undergraduate degree (B.S. in Natural Resource Sciences), under which students may select and pursue one or more majors. Each major then provides opportunities for further specialization via specific options.
Under the above curricula and irrespective of Major/Option, all students pursuing the B.S. in Natural Resource Sciences will take a common array of foundational courses in biological, physical and social sciences, mathematics, communications and arts/humanities. They will also take a common core of natural resource science courses designed to provide both breadth and integration among natural resource disciplines. Thereafter, greater and more specific educational depth is provided by required upper-division coursework with each major and option. The structure of the curricula are such that is very feasible (with some additional time) to pursue either double majoring in natural resource sciences or a major in one and minor in another natural resource field.
