Change Undergraduate Option
Human Dimensions in Natural Resources

Status: Draft

Proposal

Proposal ID: 102216
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Effective Term: Summer 2017
Justification:
We are removing the restriction of only 24 credits from one department. This restriction 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 to update the option.
