Environmental and Soil Science – Conservation Agriculture and Environmental Sustainability Concentration Major Guide for 2012-2013

There is a movement afoot to transform agriculture into a much more sustainable enterprise, including the proliferation of organic farms. The Conservation Agriculture and Environmental Sustainability Concentration in the Environmental and Soil Sciences major is challenging, science-based and emphasizes an ecosystem approach to crop production and sustainability of our precious natural resources.

Environmental and Soil Science – Environmental Science Concentration Major Guide for 2012-2013

Environmental scientists study land, soil, and water resources, and their role in natural and managed ecosystems, often working to remove the hazards that affect people, wildlife, and their environments. Understanding the issues involved in protecting the environment—degradation, conservation, recycling, climate change, and renewal energy—is central to the work of environmental scientists.

Environmental and Soil Science – Soil Science Concentration Major Guide for 2012-2013

Soil Scientists are trained to understand and manage soil and other natural resources such as water, including soil and water conservation issues, land use concerns, best management practices for urban and rural lands, waste disposal, and reclamation of disturbed lands. The Soil Science Concentration in the Environmental and Soil Sciences major is challenging, science-based and emphasizes soils and their long-term use, conservation, and productivity.
