The B.S. Earth Science with concentration in Natural Resources provides students with a fundamental background in basic sciences, including both the Life and Physical sciences. The offering is designed for students who are interested in the study of soil, water, weather/climate, watersheds, and mineral and energy resources that are frequently linked to agriculture/horticulture, forestry, ecology, and wildlife management. These areas of interest frequently transcend traditional boundaries between the life and physical sciences. Natural Resources concentration allows students to be awarded a Biology minor as an integral part of the Earth Science degree program.
