Environment & Natural Resources (ENR) students will gain depth and breadth across a range of interdisciplinary fields that engage with complex ENR ideas and challenges, with the goal of integrating across fields of study.
Students can choose to pursue:
• a concurrent major in ENR, earned alongside an approved baccalaureate degree in any other discipline, or
• B.S. in ENR, earned alongside an additional major in any other discipline.
The ENR curriculum is designed to prepare students to demonstrate learning in six key areas:
1. Specialization & Integration - Students will complement their disciplinary depth with broad exposure to ENR-related disciplines and approaches.
2. Spatial & Temporal Perspectives - Students will understand the temporal and spatial characteristics of ENR challenges.
3. Policy - Students will recognize the content and implications of past and current ENR policies.
4. Cultures & Values - Students will appreciate the diversity of ENR perspectives and experiences, including the role of personal and collective value systems and structural inequalities in shaping those systems.
5. Complexity, Risk, & Uncertainty - Students will understand that ENR problems inherently involve complexity, risk, and uncertainty.
6. Professional & Academic Skills - Students will acquire specific skills necessary to succeed in a range of ENR professions and/or graduate and professional school, especially proficiency in written and oral communication, applied problem solving, and collaboration.
All undergraduate students in ENR complete their coursework in conjunction with another major in any discipline.
Students must complete 36+ hours of coursework in ENR, including:
