Area VIII. Proficiency in a Field/Concentration


To develop proficiency in a field/concentration related to the environment, natural resources, food and human health, or agriculture, each curriculum specifies required courses, elective courses, and, where applicable, option requirements. Every program of study also specifies minimum requirements in quantitative skills and in professional ethics as they apply to the particular field/concentration for which it prepares its students.

Quantitative Skills. The quantitative skills requirement is designed to help students develop mathematical literacy and skills for analytical reasoning, including an understanding of statistical methodologies appropriate to the field for which students are preparing.

Professional Ethics. The professional ethics requirement is designed to help students develop the ability to recognize, assess, and respond to ethical problems that could be encountered in the careers students are preparing to enter.

Additional Requirements. Each degree program stipulates additional required courses in the field and may require students also to fulfill requirements in more specialized options.
