University of Kentucky College of Agriculture


In Fall 2010, Natural Resources and Conservation Management was changed to Natural Resources and Environmental Science. While the focus on natural resources remains, this name change reflects significant curriculum improvements and a renewed focus on communicaiton with stakeholders -- students, faculty, alumni, and employers.


Students receive a well-rounded environmental curriculum and then focus their studies in two areas, a skills area (what you are going to do), and a systems area (what you are going to do it with). With so many options students graduate and go on to work in policy, in a lab, in the field, or with computers.

NRES graduates all have one common goal, to create a healthy and sustainable future for our planet!
