2) Please change all FES courses to the new designator TRAL that apply.
3) Please add BCC "*" symbol to ATS 201.
4) Please change the course title to RNG 455 so that it appears identical to the Online Catalog.

1) All listings for FES 485 now contain only FES 485 (not ANS, FW, or SOC) and [Pending Approval] has been added.

2) FES 251, FES 351, FES 352, FES 353, FES 432, and FES 493 have been changed to TRAL 251, TRAL 351, TRAL 352, TRAL 353, TRAL 432, and TRAL 493 and have been moved to their appropriate alpha-numeric locations.

3) The * has been added before the ATS 201 title.

4) The title of RNG 455 has been corrected.

Proposal

Proposal ID: 101203
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: August 7, 2017 5:10pm
Approval Date: August 10, 2017 11:11am
Effective Term: Winter 2018
Justification:
This proposal updates the Natural Resources major by:
* Removing ATS 320 which has been dropped from the catalog.
* Adding additional courses to various sections of the NR Core and Breadth (SUS 103, FES 456, FES 457, GEOG 201, NR 325, FES 354, HORT 318, NR 351, PS 473, NR 312, SOIL 366)
* ANS/FES/FW/SOC 485 has been changed to FES 485 because the crosslisting is being dropped. (see proposals 98974, 100025, 100167, and 100171)
Comments:
Response to liaison Katherine Donegan: HORT 318 has been removed.

Natural Resources


Students who graduate with a BS degree in Natural Resources from OSU should be able to integrate technical field or laboratory skills with analytical skills to solve important natural resource problems. The curriculum is designed to help students acquire knowledge about a range of natural resource issues, work with experts in a variety of resource fields, and deal with social and political aspects of resource management. This program is an interdisciplinary offering supported by the colleges of Agricultural Sciences, Forestry, Liberal Arts, and Science. It is administered by the College of Forestry.

The Natural Resources major is also available at the OSU-Cascades Campus in Bend, the OSU Agricultural Program at Eastern Oregon University, and through the OSU Extended Campus program.

Students acquire knowledge and background in physical and biological systems, math and statistics, natural resource policy, ecology, economics, and decision making. Breadth is acquired in seven key areas of resource management. Finally, students develop depth in their specialty option, choosing from a number of pre-approved options, or creating an individualized specialty option. An option is required to earn the Natural Resources major.

Also available at OSU-Cascades, Eastern Oregon University, and via Ecampus.

Requirements: Updated 

In addition to the baccalaureate core, the three main areas for course work include the natural resources core (74 credits), breadth requirements (21 credits), and the specialty option (40 credits). Within these areas, students have many courses to choose from to fulfill requirements.

Only two courses used to complete the natural resources major requirements may be taken S/U. The Natural Resources Core and Breath will have a minimum GPA of 2.0. The Natural Resources Specialty Option will have a minimum GPA of 2.25.
