* Meets University General Education Requirement .
1 Physical Science Electives–two courses (8 hours) from chemistry, physics, geology, ESS 210 , GEOG 131 *-GEOG 132 *. CHEM 130 * is a prerequisite/corequisite to BIOL 140 *. Therefore, students who choose BIOL 130 *-BIOL 140 * should take CHEM 120 *-CHEM 130 * for their physical science electives. BIOL 111 *-BIOL 112 * has no chemistry requirement.
AREC 201 * (4) or ECON 201 * (4) satisfies the University General Education–Social Science requirement and the major requirement for economics. If the student transfers ECON LD for 3 credits, it will satisfy the major requirement but will not satisfy the General Education–Social Sciences requirement. In these cases, the student should take two courses from the Social Sciences list .
3 One of the University General Education Electives, Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Electives, Free Electives or a course taken as part of one of the minors must be a Communicating through Writing (WC) course . Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Electives may be selected from any courses not already required for the major. Free electives may be selected from any courses not already required for the major.
4 Choose from the University General Education list .
5 Students should select one of the minors offered by the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources: animal science, biosystems engineering technology, entomology and plant pathology, environmental and soil sciences, food and agricultural business, agricultural leadership, food science, food technology, forestry, international agriculture and natural resources, natural resource and environmental economics, plant sciences, wildlife and fisheries science, or one of the minors in the College of Communication and Information (see listing in this catalog), or submit an individualized plan of study before the third year, for approval by the advisor, department head, and the Dean’s Office. If the minor is less than 24 hours, the excess hours will become free electives.
