The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences is committed to the preparation of students and all citizens of Alabama for life in the global community through research, teaching, and outreach activities supporting NRES systems that foster viable communities, a diversified economy, and a healthy environment.
The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences will actively help Alabama manage its resources, ensure a sustainable environment, strengthen its communities, and diversify its economy, and will be the premier resource for Research, Teaching, and Outreach related to disciplines that encompass Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences.
The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences (NRES) offers degree programs in Plant Science (Plant Science & Molecular Genetics Program), Environmental Science (Environmental, Soil & Water Science Program), and Forestry (Forestry, Ecology & Wildlife Program). Students who choose to major in Plant Science may specialize in either Horticulture or Crop Science. In the Environmental Science degree program, students can specialize in Soil Science or Environmental Science or Environmental Health Science. Students who choose a degree in Forestry have the option to specialize in Forest Management or Forest Science. Further specialization or emphasis areas within these programs may be selected, with the help of a departmental advisor. All students should consult the department chairman or program coordinators for assignment of faculty advisors. The department also offers a Master of Science and a Doctor of Philosophy program in Plant and Soil Science.
An extensive research program provides unique opportunities for undergraduate students enrolled in the department to gain valuable practical experience in their chosen field of study. Under this program, several part-time work positions are available for competent and needy undergraduate students. The department also assists in securing summer employment for its students within its own research program or with private, state, and federal agencies.
Students from other departments are encouraged to take a minor in Environmental Science, Horticulture, Crop Science, Soil Science, Remote Sensing/Geographic Information Systems, Forestry, Wildlife Biology, or Fisheries Biology. Students majoring in any of the degree programs in Natural Resources & Environmental Sciences may get a minor in other areas such as Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science and Business.
