ENR Major

Environment and Natural Resources (ENR)

Undergraduate Major

Undergraduate major in environment and natural resources (ENR)

Add this major to any undergraduate degree program at UW, and you’ll work with students from across campus to learn critical thinking and collaborative problem solving for natural resource challenges.

Environment and natural resources understanding is relevant to every field of study—from biology to business, from public health to political science, from art to anthropology, and many more.

A major in environment and natural resources from the Haub School emphasizes development of essential skills:

        • Communication (written and spoken)

        • Critical thinking

        • Collaborative problem-solving


You’ll take 15 credits of ENR core courses to learn about things like current and historic environmental values and how environmental assessments work. You’ll also take 21 credits of ENR disciplines from several different departments on campus to round out your understanding of cultures and values, economics, environmental management, science, and policy as they relate to environment and natural resource issues.
