Natural Resources (Ph.D.)

Doctor of Philosophy. Major in Natural Resources.

General Ph.D. requirements apply. Doctoral candidates are required to have an understanding of the principles of resource management in areas other than that chosen as a specialization. There is no general college requirement of proficiency in a foreign language for the doctorate, but one may be required by an individual student's committee where this seems desirable.

There is only one major for the Ph.D. degree, "natural resources". However, dissertation topics are selected from disciplinary areas within each department. The single designation for the major is in keeping with the college's philosophy of integrated resource management.
