College of Agriculture: Additional Mathematics or Science Selectives

Broadening Science Selective (3 credits)

Courses meant to encourage exploration at introductory level in related fields, or to encourage optional laboratory courses. In addition to the College of Agriculture’s ‘Additional Math and Science Selectives’, any concentration selective that is not being used to complete the NRES requirement can count. 

Concentrations requiring this selective: Emerging Environmental Challenges; Environmental Policy & Analysis; Environmental Quality & Restoration; Watershed Management; Sustainability Science

NRES Concentration Selectives

Emerging Environmental Challenges Concentration Selectives (20 credits)

Students define an interdisciplinary topic of study that is not currently captured by any existing majors on campus.  In consultation with a faculty mentor and/or the co-directors the student will propose a sequence of classes that addresses the identified topic.

  1. All NRES core academic requirements must be met.
  2. No more than 2 classes can be under 30000+ level.
  3. The classes as a group should pursue an environmentally related subject.
  4. The courses should not originate from a single department. NRES strives to be interdisciplinary, and the student initiated concentration should be interdisciplinary.
  5. The student must meet with his/her academic advisor to plan the student initiated concentration.
  6. The NRES director must approve the selected courses.
  7. No more than 3 credits can come from independent study.
