Natural Resources Major Website
This major, offered by the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment, prepares students for careers related to the management of natural resources. Students develop skills in applying modern technology, concepts and principles dealing with sustainable development, environmental protection and resource conservation.
This program offers four concentrations, which are like minors but are within the major field of study rather than in a different major field of study. These concentrations allow NRE students to deepen their educational experience in an area of their interest. NRE students must declare a concentration and adhere to its requirements. Upon graduation, the concentration appears on the transcript as an official recognition of a specialization in that area.
- Environmental Sustainability and Conservation
