SUMMARY:
In the Requirements block:
1. Blanket numbered courses cannot be cross-listed. If you would like this specific Topic cross listed it must be a course with its own permanent number. Please remove cross listings from: AEC 407. Seminar
2. Please list this cross listed course the same as way as the other cross listed courses: GEO 335.

Thank you for your time,
Cheryl

1. Blanket numbered courses can be, and frequently are, crosslisted as the course in question was the last time it was offered. However, it was last offered four and a half years ago and will probably never be offered again so I have removed it.
2. The GEO/SOIL 335 crosslisting has been fixed.

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 enabling them to understand a range of natural resource issues, work with experts in a variety of resource fields, and deal with social and political components 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.

Also available via Ecampus.

^ Writing Intensive Course (WIC)

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.
