Why CRS?

Why CRS?

- Build Your Own Education
The CRS major allows students to think about an environmental issue that they are motivated about and mold together an interdisciplinary style curriculum that tackles it.

- Flexibility
You pick your classes. You pick your advisors. You make your own upper division curriculum through this major. The CRS major also allows you to branch out to other departments on campus not in the College of Natural Resources including Geography, Public Health, Anthropology, Sociology, and much more.

- The People
Personally, I’ve met some of the greatest people on Earth (students and faculty) through this major. The CRS major has a diverse and close-knit community. It’s a great major to build friendships and networks. The fact that all our Areas of Interest are interrelated helps to bring people together, to work together, to talk about issues in the world, and to collaborate towards the CRS mission of building a healthy and sustainable future.

- Real-World Experiences
Some of your classes might take you on a field trip to get a real-world look at environmental issues and projects. You might also get asked to pursue or start a project in the community where you’ll interact with people of different disciplines. This is a great way to gain experience and to start networking for future internships, jobs, volunteering, or research opportunities.
