*Concentration in Soil and Water Science (name change effective August 2014)
Soil and water quality impact all agricultural disciplines. Undergraduates with a concentration in Soil and Water Environmental Science can address compelling problems including land application of agricultural and industrial wastes, reduction of contamination of ground and surface waters, establishment of functional septic drain fields, and production of food and fiber crops.
Graduates from this concentration will be able to establish careers in traditional agrarian fields such as the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Cooperative Extension Service, conservation organizations, farm consulting firms, and in the broader environmental arena, Department of Health and Environmental Control, consulting engineering or environmental consulting firms. Graduates of the program will be well prepared for graduate work in fields ranging from soil science to environmental engineering and law.
