A minor is defined as an academic program of at least 18 credits that supplements a major. A minor program may consist of course work in a single area or from several disciplines with at least 6, but ordinarily not more than half, of the credits at the 400-course level. Total requirements are to be specified and generally limited to 18 to 21 credits. Entrance to some minors may require the completion of a number of prerequisites, including courses, portfolios, auditions, or other forms of documentation that are not included in the total requirements for the minor. All courses for the minor require a grade of C or higher.
This minor enables students to acquire scientific and field-related skills in preparation for environmental careers.
The Forest Science minor is offered for students who wish to achieve a basic competency in forestry without qualifying as professional foresters. This minor is particularly compatible with the Wildlife and Fisheries Science and Wood Products majors.
The Wildlife and Fisheries Science minor provides non-majors with a basic competency to the principles and practices of wildlife and fisheries conservation, research, and management.
The Wood Products Marketing minor offers students in other majors, especially those oriented toward business, science, or engineering, an opportunity to develop a basic competency in wood products marketing and processing. Students will obtain knowledge and skills particularly helpful for those who wish to seek employment in sales, to specify wood‐based materials for construction and design, or in other related fields in the wood products industries.
