Agriculture and Natural Resources

Exploring the Major — Students considering this major should enroll in and complete both ANR 100 and ANR 110 (Fall Term), and ANR 130 (Spring Term), preferably all during their first year. 

Admission to the Major — No special curricular requirements must be met for admission into the major. 

Course Sequencing Considerations (in order to complete degree requirements within eight terms) — ANR 110 and ANR 130 are prerequisites for several more advanced classes and should be completed by the end of the first year. MAT 115 also should be completed or waived by the end of the first year. ECO 102 or BUS 120 and CHM requirements should be completed by the end of the sophomore year (note: CHM 131 requires CHM 101 or testing out as a prerequisite. For many of our students this means they take both CHM 101 and 131). Students should take at least one 200 or 300-level ANR course in the sophomore year. ANR 494 or ANR 395/ ANR 495 should be taken in the junior or senior year. ANR 492 must be taken in the senior year (this course is offered only in the Spring, so if graduating in December students should take it the prior spring term). 

Other Considerations in the Major — Students planning to attend graduate school should consider taking CHM 221, CHM 222 and MAT 135. Veterinary school requirements vary, but will include additional chemistry, biology, and introductory physics courses. Students intending to pursue veterinary school should develop a plan early in their program in conjunction with an advisor in the Agriculture and Natural Resources Department.
