The School of Plant, Environmental, and Soil Sciences offers degree programs in environmental management systems and plant and soil systems curricula.
Spring 2012 students in EMS 3040 teamed with students in landscape architecture and geology & geophysics to take a transdisciplinary look at disturbed coastal systems in Louisiana.
Agronomy students in the Plant and Soil Systems curriculum can concentrate their studies in the areas of crop management, soil science or agricultural pest management. In addition to the basic curriculum outlined for plant and soil systems majors, students selecting the crop management area of concentration take courses in agronomy, biological sciences, economics, entomology, experimental statistics, genetics and plant health, as well as several hours in approved electives.
The environmental management systems curriculum is partitioned into three areas of concentration: 1) Environmental Analysis and Risk Management, 2) Policy Analysis, and 3) Resource Conservation. Each concentration includes a variety of elective courses that allow students to gain expertise in specific areas that interest them.
