What Classes Will I Take?
The major requirements are consistent regardless of the college/school of enrollment, but first-year programs as well as elective and distribution requirements vary depending on the college or school.
Students take a common set of courses in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and geology or plant and soil science. A common set of environmental science core courses is followed by specialized courses in one of the chosen nine focus areas.
Sample first-year schedule
A typical first-year student would enroll in the following courses:
- Fall semester*: CHEM 31 (Introductory Chemistry I), MATH 19 (Fundamentals of Calculus I), ENSC 1 (Introduction to Environmental Sciences)
- Spring semester*: CHEM 32 (Introductory Chemistry II), MATH 20 (Fundamentals of Calculus II)
*PLUS any additional courses to meet the degree requirements in their college or school (ie: a TAP seminar in CAS or NR 1 in RSENR or AGRI 1 in CALS).
