The goal of the NRES curriculum is for students to attain the skills for entry-level positions in the natural resources and environmental fields or to enter graduate school. The curriculum contains pre-major and major requirements that provide students with a background in the natural and social sciences, communication, field and laboratory skills, and problem solving. Students gain hands-on experiential learning through an internship or independent study as well as several major requirement courses. The students are required to take nine credit hours each in (1) Analytical Skill Development and (2) Environmental Systems Emphasis Area.
