Undergraduate major in environment and natural resources
The environment and natural resources undergraduate major is a double major, in that students must complete the requirements of a second "affiliated major" in addition to the requirements of the ENR program (although some courses will fulfill requirements in both majors). In this way, the environment and natural resources major adds a breadth of knowledge to the depth of training from a traditional discipline. With careful planning, many students are able to complete the environment and natural resources double major in little or no additional time because many of the ENR core courses and distribution classes also fulfill University Studies requirements.
Some things to remember:
The Environment and Natural Resources major is available to any undergraduate student completing a bachelor's degree program at UW. Given the interdisciplinary nature of ENR issues, every major is an appropriate complement to studies in ENR.
ENR student should seek advising in both environment and natural resources and their academic department to determine course schedules, eligibility for graduation, etc.
To declare an environment and natural resources major, students must meet with Maggie Bourque, Student Advising Coordinator. You can contact her to schedule an appointment — firstname.lastname@example.org, 307-766-5089 — or stop by ENR's offices at the Kendall House (804 E. Fremont).
The student's diploma is issued by the college of the student's affiliated major.
Prior to graduation, each student is required to schedule an exit interview with the Haub School so that we may improve the program through student feedback.
The environment and natural resources major requires a minimum of 34 credit hours in ENR core courses and distribution courses in addition to the curriculum requirements in the student's affiliated major. The 2003 University Studies designations are shown in parentheses.
