Change Undergraduate Option
Ecological Restoration

Status: Draft

Proposal

Proposal ID: 102166
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Effective Term: Summer 2018
Justification:
We are removing the restriction of only 24 credits from one department. This was an unnecessary restriction that is no longer needed. We moved the Measurements requirement from the Natural Resources Core into each specialty option in order to insure that students take the most applicable courses for their chosen specialty. Courses were removed, added or reorganized as needed.

This option will now be available for Ecampus students as well as Corvallis Campus students.
