Environmental Option

The environmental option require­ments are very similar to the agricultural option; however these students choose from a more specific set of courses focused on natural resources to meet their interests and gradua­tion requirements. Students who select this option complete a second major in natural resources and environmental sciences, which makes them even more marketable when competing for science-based communications positions.
