Natural Resources and environmental science
NRES is a unique and exciting major for students who want to contribute to environmental change in the world. It’s an applied, science-based program that focuses on environmental management, policy and science.
NRES students take core courses in soil science, hydrology, environmental impact analysis, ecology, and environmental policy. Many then add courses in conservation, environmental engineering, sustainability, and economics to broaden their technical background.
One-on-one advising is key to success in NRES. With guidance from your advisor, you will design a plan of study in one of six interdisciplinary concentrations.
