About the NRES Secondary Major
Because natural resource and environmental issues tend to be extensive and complex, they exceed the scope of any single discipline. The Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences (NRES) Secondary Major prepares students to apply broadly-based scientific knowledge to the use, management, sustainability, and quality of soil, air, water, mineral, biological, and energy resources. Increasing government, public, and corporate concerns about environmental affairs are producing career opportunities for individuals capable of dealing with the broad scope of natural resource and environmental problems and working effectively in an interdisciplinary environment and with a diverse set of stakeholders. The NRES secondary major provides students with extra qualifications for employment by enhancing the knowledge base provided by a student's primary major.
