Proposal

Proposal ID: 102011
Type: New Course
Submission Date: November 16, 2017 8:54am
Effective Term: Summer 2018
Justification:
Many new graduate students in Soil Science come to us with non-soil related degrees (Microbiology, Chemistry, Environmental; Sciences etc) and have little to no previous exposure to soils. This Class, together with the Lab section SOIL 514, is designed to give them a compact introduction, including hands on experience in both field and laboratory
Comments:
The course has been tested in 2017 as a 599 class. A report of activities and student evaluations are attached
