Environmental Conservation is designed as an option for students interested in developing an educational focus in the broad area of Environmental Studies for one of the many areas of the environment and conservation not directly covered by other concentrations in the NRC major. Students will design their curriculum with our core courses, but will have more flexibility in this concentration to pursue other majors, minors, or certificates, or to explore other opportunities on campus.
Students are encouraged to take advantage of the Domestic Exchange and Education Abroad programs, as well as seasonal internship programs, to enhance their degree.
Additional courses required for the concentration:
A Human Geography course, a political science course, a Career and Curriculum Planning seminar, and completion of 18 additional credits in conservation or environmentally-related courses designed to meet specific goals for career or advanced education. Nine credits must be 300-level or above.
