This program's curriculum lies in the interdisciplinary nature of the program. Drawing on the expertise of a wide variety of faculty, students will learn about biodiversity one day and discover how to do GIS mapping the next. They will learn to solve "real world" problems using their solid understanding of the natural sciences, mathematics and statistics, economics, and public policy, they also learn about ethical issues in natural resource use and management, and get practice in writing and speaking effectively through class projects and presentations. The program is a core of required courses, supplemented by eight menus of courses that allow the students to pick what interests them most. The groups focus on communications, chemistry and physics, statistics, ecosystems, plants and animals, land and water management, natural resource policy, and ethics. In their first year as an NRM major, students will take a freshman seminar, chemistry, data analysis, math, English, and resource economics. After that, they will work with their advisor to choose the way they want the program to go. An Honors Degree is available for students wishing to add academic rigor to their program.
