Agriculture and Natural Resources B.S.

A major in Agriculture and Natural Resources will provide students with a foundation in soil science, plant science, animal science, economics, and ecology and the interrelationships among these disciplines. Students will learn to apply these disciplines toward the sustainable management of agriculture and natural resource systems. The department also will allow students to pursue more specialized training in particular areas of interest, such as animal science, plant and soil sciences, or natural resource management. Students completing the program will be prepared for a variety of employment opportunities, including graduate or veterinary school, by the breadth of their academic training and the skills gained through practical experience on the College’s educational farm and forest.
