The B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies: Environmental Management in Agriculture and Natural Resources (EMANR) program uses an interdisciplinary approach to provide the scientific and technical foundation needed to integrate and communicate the diverse environmental issues associated with urban, agricultural, and natural ecosystems. Students develop an understanding of the best use of our natural resources for their social and economic benefits while protecting associated resource values, property rights, and the environment. This degree provides a solid grounding in the areas of hydrology, soil science, pest management, water resources, and agricultural ecology so that graduates can find jobs with agricultural producers, consulting companies, and government agencies involved in maintaining a sustainable environment.
Lower-division courses are selected to create a strong background in physical and biological sciences, communications, and mathematics. These are critical courses for developing a good understanding of environmental science. A core set of courses for this major dealing with land, water, natural resource policy, management, and geographic information systems provides a solid background in environmental management. Finally, students work with their advisors to choose a suite of electives that will accomplish their goals for this major.
