Environment and Natural Resources Majors

Students concurrently majoring in the Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) program should take one class each semester that applies to the ENR program. Check with your ENR advisor if you have any questions about the classes you should take.

Minors, Honors Program and ROTC

Check your degree evaluation and contact your minor or ROTC advisor to be sure that you are taking classes that apply to your program. Take one class each semester to fulfill the program requirements. Consider adding a minor to your program to add depth in your area of interest.
