Proposal

Proposal ID: 102160
Type: New Option/Minor
Submission Date: January 23, 2018 2:55pm
Approval Date: January 24, 2018 10:47am
Effective Term: Summer 2018
Justification:
Each year we have a significant number of students who are pursuing careers in law enforcement with state and federal agencies that manage our natural resources. The“Conservation Law Enforcement” will prepare students for these careers. Requirements will include communication, criminal justice, human dimensions and foundational resource management coursework. Students will also have the ability to select electives from areas of study such as criminal justice, fish and wildlife, forestry, natural resources, psychology, sociology, and recreation with guidance from their academic advisor. The option is designed to be transfer friendly for students who may be transferring to OSU with coursework in criminal justice from a community college. Students in the OSU Degree Partnership Program can access criminal justice coursework from Oregon Community colleges both online and on campus throughout the state of Oregon.

This option is replacing the Law Enforcement Natural Resources option (drop option proposal 102161).
